The Making of Maison Hermes by Roberto de Rose

SOA and I go way back to the early days of the blog with the publication of the making of Maison Herms by Roberto De Rose after I’ve seen it published in my forums.

Gianpiero & Roberto invited me to present at the Academy Day 2, then 3, and we’ve been good friends ever since.

The people of Master Class #16

I also took Master Class #16 with my partner at The Craft, Emanuel Kand, and found our first Craftsman, Dan Platner, at the Master Class!

The people of Lighting Master Class #2 with Peter Guthrie

I later took Lighting Master Class #2 with Peter Guthrie, using Corona Renderer for the first time which helped make the switch at the studio as well.

My first real attempt at using Corona RendererSuperhouse Amid The Trees

SOA and I align on so many things, and I think they are the best at what they do! Their passion and love for our field sure show in all that they do and I know this from my own experience.

I’m their media partner once more and will do the interviews with the presenters and perhaps a bit more 😉

The ADX event will take place on October 4 – 5, preceded by a full day dedicated to workshops on October 3. This year’s landmark conference marks SoA’s 10th anniversary. To celebrate, besides the usual line-up of top Industry speakers, there will be many new activities, including a big party in a secret location, demo rooms, and great networking opportunities.

This is a unique edition of Academy Days, gathering the best Companies and ArchViz Artists of the last ten years together to take stock of the changes faced by the industry and speculate on what to expect in the immediate and far future. Expect great opportunities to learn from experts about business and project management, client retention, technical developments, and the latest trends and topics. All within a carefully cultivated atmosphere that blends professionalism and camaraderie.

Looking back, we are very happy with what we’ve achieved over the last ten years, benchmarking the life of the many artists that attend our courses and conferences. Those that started taking our Master Class attended the event afterward and even came back as a speaker. That’s priceless
