The 7th Architectural Visualization Challenge I’m running in partnership with Quixel as the marquee sponsor. The book CABINS by Philip Jodidio and the fantastic illustrations by Marie-Laure Cruschi served as the principal inspiration for this year’s challenge theme. That, and my love for prefab architecture design.

I ended up changing the light and mood of my project a lot since i was traveling around scenic country sides which inspired me a brand new feel for storytelling. I discovered a sense of happiness in the midst of a brief moment in time which is just after a light snowfall or rain right at the dusk.This is what i tried to capture in my work here with the cabin entry.Hope you guys enjoy looking at it as much as i did 🙂 Looking forward to see amazing moments all of you created for the same..

Oh Dear! What a challenge. Thanks to the challenge I have found great tools such as Unreal Engine, Megascans Library and Quixel Suite. Just Wow. I am still learning but very excited for next challenge to improve. I wanted to capture the simplicity as well as a beauty of the Nature with the brutal beauty of the “human” materials.

Good news everyone! I have finally managed to connect my Unit to a new stable power source so that my XR projections don’t flicker that much anymore. Well, at least not that often as they used to.
Also, last week I found some old stylized HMD that looks very similar to one of those first VR googles from the early 2020s or so. Was it called Wive? Or Vive or something like that? Anyways, the good part is that this display is still compatible with my XR system, despite the vintage design. I guess it must have been some gentle strike of nostalgia that inspired another product designer. Or maybe it’s just a random pick of the manufacturing AI. Who knows?
Sadly, I guess the end is here and now. That’s it. I’ll leave a link to some of my XR views below. Maybe some of you can still check it out, even though it lives in this old-school thing called “the internet” (I know! Hard to believe it is still working). Give it a go:
Well, till next time then! On another platform, on another rooftop…

Surfers Utopia Cabin

A place to connect with mother nature, get inspired by cosmos waves and dance with ocean.

Naturally inspired by IBUKU.

Very happy to participate and learn so much with such talented people.

The images are virtual, but the feellings are real! Thank you all

CABINS entry by Felixy

At the start of the competition I tried to design my own concrete cabin, with Japanese interior details, on a scree slope while tapping into the idea of Scottish bothies. After some tests it just wasn’t feeling right and I saw this house which fit my original idea somewhat ;

I decided to take the Loba house and set it in a highland scene. This is my first try at an arch viz project and I’m still learning the ropes so please forgive the noise in my images! I need to read some tutorials on Vray optimisation because my computer really struggled to crank these out.

I used Rhino to model the house, World Machine for the landscape, 3DS Max, and Multiscatter for grass and stone placement. Peter Guthrie’s sky no.1313 was used for the outdoor 360 view, the wooden chair is from Dimensiva and the stool is from Vasyl Korol and Evgeniya Nikolayenko from their Basses St. Pere project.

Thanks for the chance to get my first renders out there. The other work being posted for this competition is amazing and it’s an honour to be in the same boat as you all!
