First off, congratulations to everyone reading this; the world didn’t end, and 2013 is here! Although it would have been really interesting to be around for the end of the world, I kept my fingers crossed and made plans for the future; the first of which you’re looking at now: the new Arccentric website!
For those of you that are acquainted with me, you can probably easily recall my go-to answer to the question: “Where have you been lately?” In some form or another, I probably mentioned being insanely busy, and being a social recluse. Luckily, last fall I managed to catch a chance to breathe when I was selected for the Transatlantic Program, and toured Europe and the middle-east for a couple months Read more →
German architects Wurm + Wurm have managed to take a simple concept an execute it beautifully: office buildings are typically designed one boxy floor atop another, but nobody ever said the boxes have to be perfectly aligned.

From most angles the building appears lofty and daring, yet when viewed on its narrow axis, perspective becomes distorted and the building appears appealingly silhouette-like.
As homage to what we consider one of the most elegantly designed sports cars of the decade, we created a highly detailed model of the Audi R8, and gave it its own virtual photo shoot. The car is modeled, textured, lit, and rendered in a completely virtual studio set, using only schematic orthographic drawings of the original design. In the end, discovering previously unseen details further cemented the car in our minds as proof that machines can still win our hearts.
Living or working in Chicago, it’s impossible to not find yourself in the presence of the work of the legendary German architect, Mies Van Der Rohe. His talent clearly wasn’t limited to the realm of architectural design, as evident in his classic chair design for the Barcelona Pavilion. Looking to expand our library of digital set-pieces, we modeled, textured, and rendered this iconic piece of design history within a virtual studio environment. We will be posting more images at a later date.
