Icelandic banks: a virtual reality

The AR’s pick from the world wide web.

Big Bank

Landbanksi Bank, Reykjavik, by Luxigonfor BIG)

I stumbled upon the French render company Luxigon earlier this week and I’ve been fixated. Rex, OMA and MVRDV just to name the Dutch representatives (not that Rex are Dutch anymore, but that’s obviously a rather sensitive subject). Some beautiful renders, and some quite astounding movies. All set up on a Wordpress site. Nice.

  • I can across this company a while back from the Cinema 4D web gallery. Their work is like poetic architectural pornography - I'm mesmerised. They create images like visualisation should - you can never recreate the 'real' so why bother trying. Better to create the feel, atmosphere, and wonder of the place instead. They do this with aplomb.

  • Luxigon is one of the best visualisation company but sometimes their images look a bit messy. Too much informations, lens effects, blurred people feel me confused.
    I'd be suggest to have a look at this companies that for me have a different approach about the visualisation and maybe would help to have a different vision about the architectural visualisation in the world:

    HayesDavidson with their images build the history of the UK arch.viz

    Neoscape (their animations are brilliant and technically perfect)
    http://www.neoscape.com

    Uniform (fantastic animations)

    State of Art (images)

    http://www.stateofartstudio.com

    Dbox (images and animations)

    http://www.dbox.com

    My 2 cents.
