Memorial by Efim Armand

Efim Armand, the maker of NYC TAXI comes back with yet another remarkable personal project… a 3d recreation of the memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe at Berlin that was designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold. Efim scattered most elements in this scene using iToo’s Forest Pro plugin in a different approach he might elaborate about in a following article. Enjoy the animation and the stills on his site.

Here are some stills too… and visit his Memorial page on his site too.

Your work is great. Some of the post is a little heavy for me but that is just a matter of taste. I think the subject matter is very interesting. I love seeing visualization used in other contexts.

looks real good at all, music match also. The dirt-material on the edges are a bit overdone for my taste.

@ronenbekerman exactly Ronen! You just described what i'm thinking about this animation. I love how Efim connected vision with music. Somehow it has reminded me the feeling which i had by watching The Third & The Seventh by Alex Roman.

@kodissimo It does have similarities. I really should visit Berlin soon... too much to see that I haven't yet!
