The lighting, shadows, and materials are nicely done but the content/design is still very basic... maybe that is why after 138 views no one has commented yet. Why not develop it some more and repost?

Real nice renders, but it needs context. What I mean by context is that it needs a ground, maybe grass or decomposed granite, along with a overcast sky. You can add both via photoshop then I think it would be complete. Right now Im just seeing a rendering thats just floatings in the air. Needs to be grounded. Overall very nice!

I don't know if you are aware that there is a discounted student version for 61 Euro (approx).

I remember being in constant debt in college (actually I haven't been out of debt since I left a looong time ago) but sometimes there are some things you just have to buy

 

Sure Kerkythea is free, and some people can get some really good results out of it. Most don't (or can't) though - imho....

The render is okay, but the design too simplistic. Herzog and de Meuron can get this sort of thing to work really well. They have a long history of simple forms using interesting materials, or familiar materials in interesting ways.

 

If you are going to use such simple forms, you really need something else to demonstrate 'architecture' or intelligent design.  Otherwise to be quite blunt, you can summarise your design as 2 rectangular boxes, one orientated vertically, the other horizontally. Both boxes have natural materials (if indeed one is stone and not concrete or reconstituted stone), but one is 'hard' the other 'soft'. That's about it.

 

The choice of materials doesn't justify the simplicity of the form, and the detailing on the door and window are also a bit too simple. When you are reducing things to their absolute minimum, every detail is important, and the approach to the building (extreme minimalism) really ought to be reflected in the detailing.

 

Have a look at the work of Claudio Silvestrin as well.

 

Although this may sound critical, it is actually intended to be helpful. I would guess from the design that you are still in school (in which case there is a discounted school version of Podium) or in your first year studying design of some sort.

 

If you look up some of the references above, you should find some inspiring ideas about how to approach 'simple' design, which sometimes is anything but.

Should we have a Architectual forum, where we can discuss the projects, and not only the renders ?

I think this would a really good idea, but I guess the lounge is the place for strictly non-Podium related stuff.

 

The reason I began to get interested in 3D modelling and rendering is that it meant I could talk to clients about design rather than layouts.

I think it would be a great idea to have a separate section for architectural discussions.  If it were limited to the lounge section other personal discussions like holiday greetings, birth announcements and the like would get lost. 

 

The wonderful thing ahout this forum is the willingness of professionals to share their knowledge and experience with the uniniated like students, hobbists and people who have a passing knowledge of design.  An  architectural section would elevate everyone's design level.

 

I would love to see more discussion on the actual designs of Beibel, Sepo, Solo, Baiucu and others.

 

Bigstick, you seem to have an "in" with TBD.  Could you prevail on him to create such a section?  Pleeeze!

 

Hopeful:

Thank you, TBD.   That's really great!  Between the 12 am, 2 am, 4 am . . . feedings, I'm sure you can get it done.  Right? 

 

No rush.  Thanks again.

An architectural forum would be useful... Here in the UK, I'm still in college, but in the next two years, I will be starting the uni course, so any advice would be helpful!

 

On the design: I'm probably in no position to speak (or type in this case) but every designer has their style, don't they? It would be kinda boring if everything followed set rules. Just look at Zaha Hadid and her hideous use of concrete.
