alot of time modeling. gives you more realistic results.

all of those images had hundreds of hours in them. just making the model and custom making most of the materials.

but once you start to make all of your materials yourself, you can re-use them. so it gets faster.

to do a 3D section like this i did it with the "cut 3D planes tool"

then used the light works rendering engine like any other render.

use the help menu inside ArchiCAD to find "3D Cutaway" and how to use it

Djordje,
Wow! What an impressive body of work! Which software did you use besides archicad? Is the Qatar Airways lounge Doha done with Piranesi?

Thanks, Erika :) You do collect some stuff after a couple of decades ;)

Not all my design ... Some of it is presentation work only, like the Qatar airways lounge.

Yep, Piranesi. Pre 1995 was done in 3D Studio 2 or 3, the second (sports hall, my design that maybe even got built) in AccuRender ... modeled in AutoCAD ;) The rest, from the modernist villa onwards, is ArchiCAD, Artlantis and Piranesi.

Nice work, Ed. I take it you didn't get the puffer fish or hula-girl lamps from the Object Depository. :wink:
