The visualisation of architecture has been a constant task since my studies as an architect; during my time as a student I worked not only on my own projects but also for offices rendering presentation images. Most of these images are always bound to non-disclosure agreements and therefore not presented here. Visualising architecture is generally a more challenging task than just rendering a design object or a vehicle, because of it being always situated in a context and environment that has to be presented in an equally acceptable fashion. I therefore set myself the task of rendering architecture every now and then in my spare time to improve my rendering skills with the results being presented here.
I mainly work with AutoCAD for two-dimensional drawings, Rhinoceros for two- and three-dimensional forms and 3d Max for the final modelling, texturing and lighting with VRay as a rendering engine, although being also educated in Maya, VectorWorks and FormZ.
