Phil Buerer is not stranger here, with two best of week awards (BOW 22/2014 and BOW 33/2014) and two articles published as well! Today I’m very happy to publish his third article about the making-of Villa Lanaras. He recreates an already built project, as he usually likes to do from photos. Just a single photo this time. This house was designed by architect Nicos Valsamakis at Anavyssos back in 1963. Cinema 4d, V-Ray for Cinema 4d and Photoshop are the main tools used in this project. Enjoy!
Pixelpark‘s ‘Termitary House’ visuals, inspired by the real ‘Termitary House’ in Thanh Khê District, Da Nang, Vietnam designed by Tropical Space Studio, awarded them Best Visualization of the Week NO. 49/2015 for a remarkable CG remake and level of details they went into remaking the house signature feature – The Bricks. Follow this article as they describe the process of creating these highly photorealistic visuals using 3dsmax, GrowFX, V-Ray and just a bit of postwork. Enjoy!
tresde’s Santi Sánchez makes a new appearance on the blog with his recent project “IRACEMA”. He previously posted the making-of ‘Crystal Box’ Villa, which was mostly post-production based and now we can see a mostly pure 3d / photo-realistic base approach. Follow Santi as he goes about describing his process from start to finish below. Enjoy!
Skatter for SketchUp v1 was released this week! As a SketchUp user for many years now, it is a great joy for me to help bring this tool to the SketchUp user community. Skatter is the brainchild of Architect and 3D Artist Thomas Hauchecorne, and he did a superb job developing it. Today I’m very happy to share this article by one of our early beta group users, Mads Bjerre from AART Architects. He first shared “The Meadow” in the Skatter Support forums sparking everyone’s imagination as to what can be done with Skatter. Enjoy this article and know that “The Meadow” Scene file along with the assets is available for free on The ArchVIZ Shop!
15 Renwick case study by MARCH was among my favorite articles of 2015. Seemed only natural to me to keep tabs on what they do and share more great work here… today is such a day! 12 Warren showcases a different approach to architectural visualization once again. CARVED FROM THE QUARRY, it is a fresh breeze to what seems like a very matured and defined discipline by now, reminding us it does not have to be that way and there are still paths to be explored and not just on the technical side.
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!
