3ds Max -Organic architecture modeling course- Part 1


Hi everyone

My name is Turki Alwehaibi and I’m a teacher of the organic architecture modeling course- Part 1. This course increases the learning of 3D Max modeling skills and helps the learner to make modeling easily (Only modeling) and specifically for the designs of Architect Zaha Hadid (such as Riverside Museum, Heydar Aliyev Center, International Center of Culture and Arts Meixihu Changsha in China, Al-Wakrah  stadium in Qatar & one more organic building). tools, 3DS Max interface, and 3DS Max modeling techniques. We will make a modeling of all these projects with simple ethnics and with short videos of explanation.

Modeling techniques in this course teach the trainee / learners to model buildings of complex shapes by understanding 3Ds MAX tools in different and fast ways, which helps to make organic buildings in a fast and smart way. Also, learning these techniques will help to know some of the MAX tools that are used continuously and are important to get the work done and that will be frequently applied in the projects of this course.


Real information about the projects prepared in this course.

The Riverside Museum is the location of the Glasgow Museum of Transport, at Pointhouse Quay in the Glasgow Harbour regeneration district of Glasgow, Scotland. The building opened in June 2011. The museum won the 2013 European Museum of the Year Award. The Riverside Museum was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and Borough Happold Architects. The interior exhibitions and displays were designed by Event Communications, a London-based museum design firm.

The purpose-built museum replaced the former home of the city’s transportation collection, at Kelvin City Hall.


The Changsha Meixihu International Culture and Arts Centre  is a cultural complex located in the Meixihu subdistrict of Changsha, Hunan, China. It was completed in 2019. The complex was designed by British architectural firm Zaha Hadid Architects.

The complex contains three separate cultural institutions: a theatre, a contemporary art museum (MICA), and a multi-purpose venue. It has a total floor area of 115,000 square metres. The design of the complex is characteristic of Zaha Hadid Architect’s neo-futurist style. The exterior of the buildings are dominated by sweeping white-tiled curves


Al-Janoub Stadium formerly known as Al-Wakrah Stadium is a retractable roof football stadium in Al-Wakrah, Qatar that was inaugurated on 16 May 2019. This is the second among the eight stadiums for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, after the renovation of Khalifa International Stadium. It was designed by Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid together with the firm AECOM.


The Heydar Aliyev Center is a 57,500 m2 (619,000 sq ft) building complex in Baku, Azerbaijan designed by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid and noted for its distinctive architecture and flowing, curved style that eschews sharp angles. The center is named after Heydar Aliyev, the first secretary of Soviet Azerbaijan from 1969 to 1982, and president of Azerbaijan Republic from October 1993 to October 2003.


In 2007, Zaha Hadid was appointed as the design architect of the Center after a competition. The Center houses a conference hall (auditorium), a gallery hall and a museum. The project is intended to play an integral role in the intellectual life of the city. Located close to the city center, the site plays a pivotal role in the redevelopment of Baku. The Heydar Aliyev Center represents a fluid form which emerges by the folding of the landscape’s natural topography and by the wrapping of individual functions of the Center. All functions of the Center, together with entrances, are represented by folds in a single continuous surface. This fluid form gives an opportunity to connect the various cultural spaces whilst at the same time, providing each element of the Center with its own identity and privacy. As it folds inside, the skin erodes away to become an element of the interior landscape of the Center.
