Visualizations (renderings, videos, fly-throughs) are some of an architect's most powerful communication tools. It can be difficult to imagine what a campus will look and feel like once new buildings are in place. Likewise, making the leap from a two-dimensional blueprint to visualizing what a building or space will be like on the inside is no easy feat. Visualizations such as renderings or three-dimensional fly-throughs help close that gap and allow clients and end-users to understand exactly what the designer is thinking. It can also help everyone understand how the construction of a new building (or buildings) will be phased.
The video above includes visualizations from three different campuses: University of South Carolina, University of North Carolina Wilmington, and Purdue University.
