Visualization examples

Seeing something before it is built is one of the most powerful aspects of architectural visualization. Having the ability to compare a photo of an existing building or site and then seeing the same view with the proposed project inserted as a photo montage can be incredibly useful to both client and designer. Additionally, being able to generate variations in the proposed design gives the user the tools to assess the way to move forward with the design in a way that other forms of drawing can’t match. Modest as these projects are, you can see how the tool of architectural visualization can help give form to ideas in an effective and engaging way.

Before and After

A fair number of my projects involve renovations or alterations to existing structures. One of the most effective ways to demonstrate the proposed change to a building is by taking a photograph of the existing condition of the building and its environment and manipulate the photo or matching the view with a 3D model to show that same view with the new design in place. The following are some of these “before and after” photo montages.

photomatch, massing study

Here is a quick project I just completed this week. The task was to do a quick massing model and photo matched montage for a renovation to this school entrance. The following photo and the CAD plans were what I had to work with.

From here, I created a quick massing model, and matched up the view in Sketchup to create this photomatch image:

Here is an overhead view of the massing model. This was used by the architect to show the school committee in a live presentation how the new entrance design would look in 3D
