While architecture is always a product of its time, it also has the power to transcend time. When Gabriela Mazur, our June 2022 3D Artist of the Month, was first laid eyes on the plans of the ‘Casa Ayahuasca’, she was immediately spellbound by the bold concept. Located deep within the Mexican jungle, the fusion of a Mayan temple and an ancient Roman villa tingled her creative sensibilities. After all, who could resist the challenge of capturing the unique and mysterious atmosphere of a paradise lost?
Join us on an architectural journey through space and time, as Gabriela discusses the creation of the ‘Casa Ayahuasca’, tangible inspirations, and the philosophy of movement.

There are countless reasons people start their own business: a more flexible schedule, full financial and creative control, the ambition to make a name for themselves. When Brazilian architect and 3D artist Gustavo Görgen joined forces with his friends Marina Capalonga and Eduardo Possamai to found Do Studio in 2019, he was above all driven by the wish to be part of something bigger than himself – a common goal, a shared vision, and the belief that collective efforts surpass individual ones.
We sat down with Do Studio's three founders to discuss their joint venture and deep dived into one of their most recent projects, the 'Edificio Varandas'.

While beauty undoubtedly lies in the eye of the beholder, it is usually understood to mean "pleasing to our aesthetic sensibilities". To Claudia Lühl, our March 2022 3D Artist of the Month, beauty is particularly pleasing when it is complemented and contrasted with darker undertones. Crowning her recent graduation from the renowned Gnomon School of Visual Effects, Games and Animation, the 3D character artist reinterpreted a concept of a young child holding a lamb. A second glance at this seemingly perfect depiction of 'Innocence', however, reveals something unsettling lurking beneath the surface…
Join us, as Claudia dives deep into the creation of her latest project, talks about the hardships of studying during the pandemic, and her affinity for disquieting beauty.

Valentine's Day has just passed, but our love for 3D is certainly not bound to a specific day of the year. For our February 2022 ArtWanted! feature, we have successfully courtedHamed Zand, and he graciously gifted us some eye candy, which we are more than happy to share with you!
Hamed Zand is yet another talented artist from the thriving 3D community in Iran. Based in Urmia, the 33-year-old has a degree in architecture, with his fascination for the field dating back to his adolescence, when he first laid eyes upon architectural photography. His passion eventually led him to 3D software, and he did his first archviz job in 2014. Today, Hamed mostly works with 3ds Max, Maya, and AutoCAD.
In 2018, Hamed joined forces with his friends Aqil Sayyah and Sheida Lotfi to found Xavi Studio. Initially, with little money and lackluster equipment at their disposal, the three of them have been working tirelessly to consolidate the company. Although Hamed tells us they still struggle with the occasional client’s lack of financial commitment, Xavi Studio is slowly but surely making a name for itself in architectural visualization and object/product modeling.
For his interior design work, Hamed prefers a minimal and modern style, with special emphasis on soft lighting and dark, more subdued color palettes.

In our interview, Kirill takes us behind the scenes of what he considers the supreme discipline of his craft: the city streetscape.

At first glance, the distinction between interior and exterior in architecture and design seems clear-cut. However, liminal spaces such as gardens or rooftops blur this line: should we consider them separate entities or are they two sides of the same coin?

An interior designer specialized in furniture, fixtures and equipment, Omnia has also enjoyed working on several outdoor areas as part of a series of projects for Balance Decoration.

Today marks a much-welcomed break from the luxurious interiors of glossy magazine pages, courtesy of David Zamanov, our October 2021 3D Artist of the Month!

The relationship between architecture and nature is a conundrum as old as time. When Iranian CG artist Hamid Reza Goli encountered the site of environmental degradation, he was immediately inspired to counteract. Together with his wife, and fellow architect, he envisioned a structure that would revive the barren space and harmonically incorporate its lush surroundings. The result, the ‘Koi House’, is a blend of contemporary architecture and traditional Far Eastern aesthetics, bridging the gap between past and present, and pointing to a reconciliatory future.
Check out our interview to find out more about Hamid Reza, his artistic vision, and the making of the ‘Koi House’.

While Iranian architect and visualizer Tina Tajaddodherself humbly declines the label of 3D artist, her soulful and intimately personal approach to CGI left us no choice but to select her as our September 2021 '3D Artist of the Month'! Skillfully crafted architectural reflections of her thoughts and feelings, Tina's work offers a unique and authentic glimpse into her mind. Although a design of individual creative expression, she nonetheless invites the viewer to seek refuge in her 'Quiet Place'.
In our interview, Tina discusses the Iranian CG community, introversion and the search for inner peace.

In 2020, the Chicago History Museum partnered with the filmmaker, Geoffrey Alan Rhodes, to produce a virtual reality experience of the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. The centerpiece of the experience would be a recreated ride on the original Ferris Wheel using historical photographs, taken through the windows of the passenger cars more than 120 years ago, matched with VR drone photography above the site, and a 3D animated recreation of the wheel and the car interior.
This case study describes the project, the process, and the essential role of RebusFarm’s generous support.
