Invisible Cities: Octavia Structures

Here are some simple silhouettes for ideas of Octavia structures (using the lasso tool in Photoshop) that take off from my sketches. After coming back to see these after a couple of hours, I notice I may be packing in too much detail too soon. I am going for a unique city, however I must remember that even simplicity can be beautiful. So, after reviewing these buildings, I may abandon these ideas, but make way for better ones.


  1. I'm wondering if you need a clear bit of design logic: Octavia, as a name, means 'Born 8th' - so maybe think about using '8' as a design rule... 8 sides, 8 towers, 8 this, 8 that... just an idea.

  2. Even if you decide to abandon these ideas, these are some really lovely silhouettes!
