Basic Tips to Render your Architectural Scenery with ARCHICAD
In this tutorial we want to take a look at ARCHICAD by Graphisoft and which settings can be used to create architecture visualization of a day and a night time interior scenery.

Firstly, it is important to speak about some general rules, which are not directly connected to the direct render setting, but still make a huge impact on the final product. [Read More…]

Background of this architectural rendering job
In this tutorial we will try to go through the basic steps of architectural visualization using one of our recent projects. The client requested to create a number of still visuals of a new modern-classic private residence with a big lawn garden, placed in Athens, Greece.

I want to share with you the different steps as well as the lessons learned in this project. [Read More…]

Of course there are standard elements like persons, plants and trees, but from time to time also a swarm of flying birds is used to transport emotions like vastness or freedom [Read More…]
Architectural competitions have been a longstanding tradition in the design profession. They allow architects to gain publicity and recognition for their work while simultaneously infusing new and innovative ideas into the field. They promote cutting-edge ideas and allow professionals to take chances that they may not be able to with traditional client based projects.
There are several different kinds of projects the most common being open competitions where all are allowed to submit their designs in a public bid. In comparison there are also invite only competitions where the prospective client will ask for bids from specific firms they are interested in working with. Open competitions, of course, are more difficult to win, as sometimes there are hundreds of entries. [Read More…]
