The Challenge

Your task is simple: Create one rendering that powerfully communicates an architectural form or space and the experience of those that would inhabit it. Your visualization can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can take the form of a perspective, parallel projection, section, abstract or any other image format. As long as it is a computer-generated visualization that portrays part or all of a building or group of buildings, it is eligible.

Finalist Renderings will be reviewed by a stellar jury of industry leaders from the world of architectural visualization, with each entry being judged on the following 3 criteria: Communication, Aesthetics, and Impact. Check out the detailed judging criteria here.
