  • description

  • This book surveys cutting-edge practices in photo-realistic architectural representation with the intention of demonstrating a wide range of approaches and techniques and highlighting future trends and emerging sensibilities. Examples range from images that impress with the crisp precision of intricate details to more painterly experiments that seduce with ineffable yet realistic atmospherics. The images were selected for their capacity to translate the power of imagination into tangible realities by means of a sophisticated and disciplined use of state-of-the-art digital imaging technology. The collection includes work by leading offices that are currently setting the quality standards and tone of the profession. Young firms that will be shaping the field in the near future are also featured. The aim of the book is to instruct and especially to inspire with a critically annotated presentation of exemplary work and will be of interest to architecture professionals and amateurs alike.
