Gardens by the Bay

This is probably one of the most artistic type of architectural 3d presentation I have been so lucky to have seen so far. It was done by Squint/Opera and was originally the winning entry to a landscape architecture competition in Singapore. Very pleasant to watch and incredibly creative!

Experimental Architectural Animation

This short animation was described in you tube as Experimental Mograph, Sound & Motion. Some cool morphing happening in this video, and experimenting with 'camera shake'. The 'camera shake' technique is slowly working its way into 3d fly-throughs which has been around for quite some time in computer animated movies. Adds excitement to a scene when used correctly. I heard that this could be done with programs such as Adobe After Effects! Don't know what could be used for the abstract morphing effects.. but I have done something similar when I experimented with Cinema4D.

NEORAMA - Demo Reel 2006

These folks are amazing! The demo reel shows it all. Very crisp architectural animated pieces. They have a demo reel for 2007...I'll try to post it up when I can. This was 2 years ago! And it's still of outstanding quality even for nowadays. Their website is definitely worth a visit which is also very well designed. Check out Neorama!

3D Sao Paulo

This is a nice massing model of an urban scape. All secondary/entourage structures were rendered white and the only thing detailed was the primary structure and landscape and some street scape. This technique has been used in many real life scaled models. Why not do it in computer generated models too right?! Very neatly done.

Jacques Ferrier - Projet tour Phare

This might be a different scheme of a building design included in one of my previous posts or this could be an entire different project. Regardless, this 3d animation has very good composition with an effort to tease you by showing parts of the design through out the fly through. It is only around the ending where you actually capture a full glimpse of the whole project. I find this technique to be intriguing.

Animated Movie Trailers - must see!!!
