Renderings . 3D . Tutorials

Here’s an interesting resource book on renderings:

Architectural Renderings
Construction and Design Manual

464 pages, over 350 images, 225 × 280 mm
hardcover with elastic strap
ISBN 978-3-938666-63-0

Fourteen selected international rendering studios introduce their images in detail and provide in-depth reports on their methodology and use of digital technology. A standard work on architectural rendering, this book draws lines of tradition and incidentally rehabilitates this independent discipline in the broad sphere of architecture. It contains a comprehensive overview of the earliest architectural drawings through to modern, highly technical forms of digital rendering, including tutorials based on the everyday praxis. With additional essays by the renowned professors Augusto Romano Burelli (Udine / Venice) and Fabrizio Avella (Palermo/Agrigento).
