Archiol has organized this rendering competition to understand the possibilities of rendering techniques used in architecture design.

“Architecture is a visual art and the buildings speak for themselves” – Julia Morgan

Presentation skills are an asset for any designer. One of the best mediums to showcase your architectural designs is through rendering. Rendering techniques support the creation of realistic visuals of the architectural design before the actual construction.

This rendering competition challenges you to develop architectural rendered images that depict Parallel Universe.

The Images can either be digital or hand drawn.
