Radek Ignaciuk opened 2016 with the first Best of Week visuals recreating Tham & Videgård Arkitekter’s “Archipelago House”.

He will cover the modeling process with GrowFX as well as the scanning of the textures used to get it look photoreal. Enjoy!
The Boundary showcases their latest and remarkable visuals for Renzo Piano’s 87 Park residential building in Miami. I had the pleasure seeing this remarkable piece of work for the first time during SOA Academy Day #6, during which The Boundary shared more information about the creation of the stills and animation this project called for. It is a pleasure for me to spotlight this project here, accompanied by some slides from The Boundary’s SOA Talk. Enjoy!
