Ronen Bekerman is another very popular forum for the arch viz industry that has plenty to offer.
This was probably the most interesting competition I have done to date. I felt the theme gave room for some interesting and different ways to look at architecture and to move away from the conventional. This is the approach I took anyway and ended up with 4th runner up which I was very pleased with.
The idea behind my entry was to create a residential building that was more open than the conventional closed in housing blocks we commonly see (probably for practical reasons). I wanted to create a ‘green’ 3-dimensional suburb. There would be outdoor breakout spaces on the various levels. In the end I think I ended up with a 'post apocalyptic industrial style' type building.
I used 3dsmax2011 with mental ray for rendering. Forest Pro to scatter the trees and grass. A little ZBrush here and there and Photoshop for the post.
Once again there were many great entries and I was proud to be among the winners. Thanks to Ronen, the judges and the sponsors.
You can find a making of my entry here.
