Peter + Alison Smithson / Upper Lawn Pavilion 3D Recreation by Lasse Rode

I never heard of Peter and Alison Smithson and their Upper Lawn Pavilion that they designed for themselves as a weekend house. Loving brutalist architecture, I have to thank Lasse Rode form studio xoio for doing such a remarkable 3d recreation of this house. This set shows the house in the way it probably looked early on in its life. Brutalist creations have a tendency not to age so well if not kept in check… especially in landscaped, humid areas. However, I kind of like that derelict, rustic look.

Thanks again, Lasse...

not only for your beautiful atmospheric images. but also for the architectural projects you choose. This one is definitely a favorite Smithon project which i really love. Also the bus is great, same as the one my parents had...reminds me of childhood holidays..

Keep on going...

Hello!

 

I also have to say I love your renderings! I have one question regarding the use of "grain" as you mentioned you did in post-production. I was always looking out for the right answer creating this kind of "look", for example the wooden ceiling on picture 15/18. It somehow looks CG-rendered, somehow real, but it also has a special "diffuse" or "grainy" touch to it.  Some images look, as if they where printed out on thick, rough paper, where you also get kind of this diffuse-effect, because the paper is sucking up color and slightly blurring the image. I hope you know what i mean? Would you be so kind, telling which kind of "grain", "filter" or which program you used for giving your images that "grainy-diffuse" look? Thank you and keep up your great work!

These are great renders in my opinion, some kind of a expressionist style I'd say, I love it.

I think that your philosophy is to extract a lot of render Elements to have full control and play with it in post production so I have a question: what render elements do you use exactly ? Are you minimalist and play only with some slight curves corrections, or are you"maximalist" and tweak all materials one by one in post prod to achieve the exact feeling you want to ... ? And, in that case, how would you manage with a video where you cannot play anymore with VRayWireColors or Multimatte elements ... ? I think it s a crucial aspect of our work.

Anyway, hats off to you, and thank you for sharing.
