Nautilus Library Design
This is my sketch for the Nautilus library design. I have tried to keep the indian feel of the Nautiluses exterior. I have used lots of spiral shapes because they suggest in an abstract way lots of different aquatic shapes such as waves, shells and squid tentacles. I have also attempted to abstractly suggest a few other aquatic shapes. I wanted to use lots of bolts in the walls to make it seem more constructed like a vessel, as-opposed to just a posh library that could be anywhere. I have also included details like the air purification pipe that is described in the book. I have also added an electric light with fluorescent ringed tubes I wanted this to resemble a chandelier. I also added a porthole to further suggest that this is aboard an aquatic vessel. I like the way the constructed feel contrasts with the luxury of the room.
