Making of Favela

August 14, 2014 |  by  |  Making-Of, Native, Tutorials

Matthias Buehler approached me not long ago, sharing his personal project ‘Favela’ which immediately got me curious. Knowing Matthias works at ESRI as 3d Product Engineer involved with the CityEngine project I knew that some cool stuff are going on behind the scenes and I was eager to learn more about it. In this article, Matthias describes the rather ‘techy’ process of the procedural generated creation he and his friend Cyrill Oberhaensli went through over a span of 2.5 years working on it in their spare time. Enjoy!

Phil Buerer‘s ‘Stadtpark Biel’ visuals had several color views, but the Black & White ones up top captured my attention the most and awarded him Best Visualization of the Week NO. 22/2014. I love the architectural subject and contrast between the two parts of it, as well as the well thought of composition and balance between sky, clouds, trees, house and the grass in front of it all. Today he shares with us the story behind this project and the process of making these great looking visuals. Enjoy!

Making of “The White”

July 14, 2014 |  by  |  Making-Of, Native, Tutorials

Maarten Demey from A1 Planning posted last month some still images of “The White”, an interesting looking residential project located at the Belgian coast near the historical center of Ostend. The architecture captured my attention and the visuals had a nice feel to them, it was interesting for me to learn more about this project and the balance between pure 3d and postwork that was done on the visuals. Maarten is kindly sharing this information with us all in this article which includes several slides of the post-process stages. Enjoy!

Making of NEON Light

NEON is a campfire inspired light and sound installation by Nicole & Markus Heilmann from 2003. What you see here is a virtual simulation of that installation done by Markus himself driven by a what can only be described as bad documentation! The result, accompanied by cool sound design & music by Bram van der Poel, is pretty remarkable and we get to see how it was made too. I wonder if he would ever document the real thing the same way?
