1985 Romeo and Juliet Set

This was our second project in my set design class, and this time we had to redesign Romeo and Juliet to another time period and setting and then build it in a quarter inch scale model. I chose Berlin, Germany in 1985 because I felt that it could be easily adapted to the original story. The two sides could be East and West Germany and our two protagonists could live on opposite sides of the wall. I also have an adoration for the 80s in general, so it was very easy for me to get excited about this project! I built the model box from foam board as well as the bases for the buildings. Details like the brick were added with textured plastic sheets I painted and I even used materials like wet plaster for the deterioration of the wall.
