Architectural Visualization in Movies: How to Tell Stories and Create Atmospheres
In movies, architecture is frequently dismissed as scenery, yet the camera emphasises how important it is in real life. Writing and filmmaking have long been fascinated by architecture, and some of the most famous movies in history are remembered for their settings.

Living on high: why do we choose penthouses and rooftops?
Buildings have been discovering methods to take advantage of what rooftops can contribute to urban life as cities become more vertical. Because of the occupation of the roofs, contemporary architecture has acquired access to sunshine, natural air, and the horizon through halls for parties, restaurants, swimming pools, and other programs, making them appealing for both residential and commercial buildings.
Atmospheric Rendering: Your Visualization with the Right Mood
Photorealistic CGI is an amazing tool for architects. It’s the most practical visual solution for project presentations, portfolio updates, marketing activities, and contest entries. At the same time, 3d visualization offers limitless possibilities for the architecture professional’s artistic expression. And it is the choice of weather and season that allows one to create not just an informative, but also a truly atmospheric rendering.
Why You Need to be Using VR in Architecture
A different approach to work for architects is virtual reality. For your design workflow, it offers a powerful tool with limitless potential when combined with real-time visualization tools.
Building Beauty: When Artists Design for Architecture
Buildings and places influence daily life whether architecture is considered an art form. Modern cross-disciplinary explorations are revisiting tradition by testing the limits of architecture and the classification of art.

What we learn from Biomimicry in Architecture
A new field called "biomimicry," which derives its name from the Greek words "bios," which means "life," and "mimesis," which means "to imitate," investigates nature's best innovations before applying these patterns and methods to solve problems in society. A prime example of "innovation inspired by nature" is the study of a leaf in order to develop a more effective solar cell.

And no prize is more prestigious than the Pritzker Architecture Prize, which is given every year. It is, in fact, comparable to the Nobel Prize in Literature in terms of architecture.
3D Printing in Architecture
The phrase "3D printing" refers to a variety of techniques and technologies that provide a broad range of capabilities for producing parts and products in a variety of materials. Essentially, all of the processes and technologies have one thing in common: they all include layer-by-layer creation in an additive process, as opposed to traditional ways of production that involve subtractive methods or molding/casting processes.
