Introduction to The One Rendering Challenge!

Renderings spark the imagination like nothing else in architecture. With the help of extraordinarily powerful software, visualizations form a magic bridge, taking us from drawings to completed buildings in a heartbeat. These days, almost anyone can create a rendering with an incredible degree of photorealism.

So, what next?

Nowadays, rendering has to be more than just eye candy — it needs to tell a story about architecture, helping people envision not just what a building will look like, but how it will feel to gaze up at, live alongside and stand within. What atmosphere and emotion can you conjure with a single rendering?

This is the One Rendering Challenge :

Can you create a single rendering that tells a compelling story about architecture and its inhabitants?

Competition Brief

Create one rendering that powerfully communicates an architectural form or space and the experience of those that would inhabit it. It can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can take the form of a traditional perspective, parallel projection, section, abstract or any other image format. As long as it is a computer-generated visualization that portrays part or all of a building or group of buildings, it is eligible. This should be accompanied by a short description of your proposal, no more than 150 words.
