Winner

Adam Karlsson

adamkarlsson

Sweden | The Game Assembly

Since my early teens. I have always been very creative and fascinated by the power of art. As a hobby I begin taking a lot of photography and filming using my camera. It was first when I discovered the world and power of CGI. I soon figured out that it is constantly developing and there is always something new to discover. I knew right away this was something for me.

Hi, i'm an architect and during my degreee i started to fall in love with the word of the architectural visualization and being more comfortable using photoshop and trying to showcase my projects using images before anything else.

I've studied graphic design but I have always been interested in architecture and ArchViz so I decided to learn by myself a 3D software. This is how I found Adan Martin's youtube channel and School-ing.

Highly Commended

Spain | 24 Studio Lab

When I started studying architecture I realized that I was very interested in all those tangent disciplines. I was very interested in graphic design, photography, art, advertising, etc. When I design an architectural project I have the need to visualize it through modeling. For me, modeling is a necessary tool in the process of creating a space.

Highly Commended

Spain | SCHOOL-ING

After graduating in BA Architecture I landed my first job as an architectural assistant. Soon after I started I realised that the professional architectural environment lacked the artistic aspect I was so passionate about. I decided to pursue a career in Architectural visualisation because it was the perfect combination that allowed me to merge my interest in architecture and my passion for the arts. Two years down the line I am convinced it's one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Highly Commended

Sweden | Yrgo

From an early age, 3D and computer graphics have been a captivating and intriguing factor in my life. From a humble beginning in designing 3d-levels for an old Star Wars game, my journey has progressively been involved in various conceptual and design works. Moving from upper secondary school to architecture school, the decision to do a deep dive into architectural visualization became a natural step in the creative process of shaping a professional career in visualizing the unbuilt.

People's Choice

For the past four years my professional profile has been very technical. Now I would like to shift my work towards something more artistic, expertising in modelling and rendering techniques.
