Renzo Piano’s 87 Park by The Boundary

The Boundary showcases their latest and remarkable visuals for Renzo Piano’s 87 Park residential building in Miami.

It is a pleasure for me to spotlight this project here, accompanied by some slides from The Boundary’s SOA Talk. Enjoy!

Viktor Nassli shares two interesting animations created for Messana O’Rorke Architects – The Phoenix and Vieques House.

The Eames House is widely considered as one of the great buildings of the 20th century.

Sava Zivkovic recently published his personal animated short where he tried to capture the essence of the house. This project of his is in many ways a case study of its own, and the making of it is kindly being shared by him here. Enjoy!

He did not get a chance to complete this on time but his remarkable work could not go unnoticed, and I wanted to learn more about how he went about creating this little chunk of NYC and letting a taxi run wild inside it. Efim was very kind to put it into words in the form of this making-of article. Enjoy!
