Working in an Architectural firm for 10 years, I have seen a lot of renderings, many of them quite good. In fact, many of the CG renderings were at first glance difficult to tell if they were actual spaces/buildings or an designer’s/architect’s vision.
Tonight I came across a film by Alex Roman. This is ‘digital architecture’ like no other. I couldn’t quite believe this wasn’t an actual video tour through Louis Khan’s Phillips Exeter Academy Library. “The Third & The Seventh” project, for the Mundos Digitales 2009 [digital architecture] conference, is a stunning example of how real CG can be, with the right tools…and of course the right digital artist. Not just beautiful to look at, the soundtrack is perfect, The Divine Comedy’s “Laika’s Theme” from “Absent Friends” album.
