Tired of seeing Nordic families in representations of Colombian markets and New York hipsters drinking coffee in Mexican cultural centers, a group of self-described “young latinos” have created Escalalatina, a collection of high-resolution images of “people on the road to development” to be used for renderings.

Escalalatina: Rendering Your Designs with Diversity

Inspired by Teodor Javanaud Emdén’s SKALGUBBAR - a virtual library of people for renders - Escalatina aims to provide a way for Latin American architects to fill their renders with images of local people. All of the images are available in .png format and users can also submit their own images for the site as well. Check out some of the Escalalatina images after the break.

How to Get Started with 3D Printing (Without Spending a Fortune) As an engineering student in NYC, I found that the area is surprisingly "dry" for 3D printers.

How to Get Started with 3D Printing (Without Spending a Fortune)

Yes, I know 3Dhubs exists, and my university technically has one, but its hard to get a hold of, especially if you're printing something for purely personal use. To solve this, I co-founded a company for local 3D printing. Submit and pay online, and pick up in-person. So it's a more formal interaction than 3Dhubs, but faster and cheaper than Shapeways since we don't do shipping. So for anyone in the NYC area, check out A photographers approach. MIR. BLOG. This post is also a follow up from many emails asking me to explain the diagonal line hatching used the site analysis diagrams.


There are two methods in Photoshop that I know of that can create the diagonal line hatch seen in the image above. Both options use a relatively fast workflow and are easy to execute. OPTION A: Google Image Overlay A1. This option involves simply going online and finding a hatch pattern. If you do need to copy a small image many times, hold down the "Alt" key ("Option" on Mac) and drag the image using the "Move" tool. A2. ARTEFACTORYLAB. Frank Gehry Creates New Digital Platform To Aid In Collaboration. Frank Gehry has long been at the forefront of technological innovation, helping to equip architecture with the means of re-imagining its horizons.

Frank Gehry Creates New Digital Platform To Aid In Collaboration

Continuing in this vein is Gehry’s next big venture, which aims to transform the way that designers collaborate through the use of cloud based software. The software, dubbed GTeam, creates an online community to share work in a universal format. Classics modeled with ArchiCAD - Behnisch & Partner - Munich Olympic Stadium. Adam Martinakis.

This model comes in high-poly, including textures and materials for Rhinoceros and 3DS Max. ¿contribuyen las nuevas herramientas de diseño a la mejora de los modos de vida? La pregunta enfocada desde esa óptica resulta tan inútil como esta otra, ¿cómo ha mejorado en nuestras vidas la aparición de la llave inglesa?.

¿contribuyen las nuevas herramientas de diseño a la mejora de los modos de vida?

No obstante, la arquitectura guarda buena memoria de cómo la aparición de instrumentos y materiales novedosos han sido capaces de introducir sorprendentes cambios de rumbo: el vínculo entre el Renacimiento y la aparición de la perspectiva, o el empleo del hormigón y el movimiento moderno son, junto a los signos de los tiempos, factores desencadenantes de sobra conocidos. Bien es cierto que al principio de toda revolución, las herramientas solo se emplean por el lujo de que existen, sin que apenas importe lograr su uso óptimo; solo por el placer del juego.

Con una motivación semejante a la que tienen el alpinista ante una montaña que debe ser escalada simplemente por el hecho de que “está ahí”. Eso sí, quizás con algo de la torpeza propia del simio ante un objeto incomprendido. Taller de modelado 3D con Processing.

Contenidos: Architecture 3D Illustrations. Víctor Enrich recently shared with us his architecture 3D illustrations and visualizations.

Architecture 3D Illustrations

Over the years he has experimented with a variety of mediums resulting in these 3D creations. A full description of his work and further illustrations following the break. From the artist: My artistic career begins at the age of 10 designing unreal cities, with all their streets (and their street names), their buildings, their topography, their bus and subway lines and all the elements that any city has. These designs are made in 1:5000 scale, by pencil, on A4 sheets of paper creating a puzzle to reach areas of several square meters.

At the age of 13, computers are discovered as well as some CAD drawing programs. At the age of 15, 3D CAD software is discovered, so the drawings are not bi-dimensional anymore and some primigenial virtual urban spatialities are born. By 2010 production is greatly increased, helped by the artistic atmosphere flowing into the city of Tel Aviv.
