The 7 Most Popular Architectural Visualization Styles

Submit renderings of built or unbuilt projects that were used to illustrate a new concept and design here. There was a time when no self-respecting rendering would allow itself to be seen in public without a zeppelin hovering somewhere in its desaturated sky. Supermodels in haute couture garments strutted across opera foyers, uninterested expressions and blasé attitudes adding to the exclusivity of the space.

These gimmicks are still widely used, but since its early days architectural rendering has seen major technical advancements that allowed it to appropriate cinematic techniques relying on color, lighting, framing, composition, and angles to convey moods. Air-Garden.

Park life: the evolving approach to designing urban public space. The High Line section 3 – 10th Avenue spur James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. 2012 Courtesy City of New York and Friends of the High Line Finding new spaces in towns and cities that can be turned into communal parks is extremely difficult with every available plot in such high demand and so, as with many other aspects of urban development, the reuse or re-appropriation of existing land has become a popular alternative.

Park life: the evolving approach to designing urban public space

The shining example of this practice is New York’s hugely popular High Line development, which has converted a disused freight rail line elevated above the streets of Manhattan into a popular park and walkway. Designs were recently unveiled for the third and final section of the High Line, which will wrap around the Hudson Yards, an active train yard for Long Island Rail Road.

Written by Jack Moins on 02/03/09 Greater Mexico City is the third largest metropolitan area in the world and the largest in the Western Hemisphere with a population of over 22 million people.

Mexico City Tries to Clean Up Its Act With Urban Vegetation

The city is home to much of Mexico’s economy, industry and culture. However, it is also horribly polluted, contributing 1.5 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. The city is so polluted, in fact, that 4,000 people die every year as a direct result of the toxic chemicals that float in the air over much of the city. The Mexico City Human Rights Commission declared that the state of the city was a “violation of the right to a healthy environment.” The good news is that the city’s leadership appears to be finally making a push to clean up their act.
