Your task is a simple one: 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. This should be accompanied by a short description of your proposal, no more than 150 words.

One of the most exciting features of the inaugural One Rendering Challenge is the prospect of having your visualizations reviewed by some of the most influential professionals in the ArchViz industry. The jury for the competition includes numerous leaders in the field, including:

These judges will score submissions based on a number of criteria, including technical expertise, originality and atmospheric power. The top 100 renderings will be published in the “One Rendering” eBook, to be shared with thousands of architects and the millions of design enthusiasts that comprise Architizer community.

Renderings spark the imagination like nothing else in architecture. With the help of extraordinarily powerful software, visualizations form a magic bridge, taking us from drawings to completed buildings in a heartbeat. These days, almost anyone can create a rendering with an incredible degree of photorealism. But can they do even more?
