SOA #AcademyDay5 - Interview with MIR

SOA #AcademyDay5 – Interview with MIR

October 13, 2014 |  by  |  Interviews

I first interviewed Trond Greve Andersen & Mats Andersen, co-founders of Norway based architectural visualization studio MIR, back in March 2011 and had the pleasure to chat with them both following their presentation at SOA’s #AcademyDay5 in Venice last week. We started with expanding on the title and content of their first presentation “MIR is a Restaurant”, continued about how they view the technical aspects of the visualization work and finishing with a question about how does a usual day look like for a founder of MIR, considering they need to manage a 10-14 people studio. For all of you thinking about applying to work at MIR, I asked Troned what is it they look for in an artist. Enjoy!

The first image I’ve seen by SOA‘s Roberto De Rose was the Maison Hermes personal work based on Renzo Piano’s Hermes building in Tokyo. I was so amazed by it I asked him to share more information about it and it became one of the first making of articles on this blog – Making of Maison Hermes. Roberto is on the CityLIFE Challenge jury panel and those of you coming to Academy Day #2 in Venice this October will get to meet him and Gianpiero in person.
