A lot of us spent tons of time in Emerald City. It was sort of an architectural wonderland for me as I got to cover ground that I hadn't before, really trying to get the place to look masculine and powerful as an icon while also feeling lived in. A lot of the dna and many elements of the model came from Dylan Cole's short stint on the project, while much of the city was modeled by The Third Floor's Brian Pace, Maria Serrano and Felix Jorge. I did lots of proportional tweaks, trim work and was responsible for the main buildings and arrangement of this version of the city. It then went over to the wizards at Sony to become what finally went on screen.
