Yesterday we kickstarted a 5 parts series about The ArchVIZ BIZ by Norm Li. Read the introduction on the Job Board Blog to get a sense of what is coming… it’s GOOD! I’ve been keeping an eye on Norm Li’s studio since I started out 15 years ago and seeing how they grew to become the biggest independent ArchVIZ Studio in Canada is amazing. Lot’s of insight coming your way – brace yourself!
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!
It is not a secret that the photo being used as a backdrop for a photorealistic architectural visualisation, specifically an aerial, can make or break the visual. I find it odd I did not address this area of our work so far – When Virtual Meets Reality! That is why I’ve approached Jason Hawkes, A London based photographer specialising in Aerial Photography since 1991 to share his insight on the topic. Enjoy!
I’ve rounded up all of the 52 Weekly Best Visualizations for 2015 during the year, Selected the best in each month to form the 12 Best Visualizations of 2015 and now I’m happy to announce that the BEST Visualisation of YEAR 2015 is “Jeju International Airport” by Tomek Miksa, Founder of DOWNTOWN! Far from easy as all 12 are great, but it had to be one in the end, and Tomek excelled this time around.
2016 started and it’s time to look back and reflect upon the best works posted by you on the forums during 2015. This time there is no need to specifically showcase the 52 best of week projects as they where and still are on the display here – Best of Week 2015. Go ahead and take a look at them all, drop a good word and check here who entered the best 12 of the year. I’m very proud to share these great visuals with you and hope to see all of you keep sharing your remarkable works this year too! Top image has nothing to do with the final best of year pick.
State of Art Academy MasterClass #19 just finished and here I feature the great work of the students. This time the main theme was The Verdant Avenue House by Robert Mills Architects, a modern floor to ceiling opened scheme looking at a giant pin oak outside. Beautiful results, as always, coming from SOA!
