The Art of Rendering: How Technology Will Revolutionize Architectural Representations

Mottle’s unique background, encompassing architectural design, visualization and business development, makes him a leading authority on all things ArchViz. CGarchitect went live 15 years ago and has since evolved into a go-to source of information on architectural visualization and a community platform with over 80,000 forum members and 1.3 million unique visitors per year. It is hard to imagine anyone whose work relates to architectural representation not having posted a comment on the forum, read a tutorial, gotten inspired by the huge gallery of images or looked for a gig in CGarchitect’s jobs section.

In addition to running the website, Mottle speaks at events around the globe. Making of Metallum City - Giants in The Dust. Hello Everyone!
