Project Ideal Spaces

Remodeling Tony Garnier's »Cité industrielle« from the 1920s


Coming soon!

Renderings from the art project "Ideal Spaces Working Group" (please have a look at the website:, part of the exhibition "Time Space Existence at the Venice Biennale Architettura 2016 at Palazzo Mora. Because of the still running exhibition I can not show full movies or more still images. At the end of November 2016 I try to update this page. DONE, have a look!.

One of the habitat districts. Extreme instancing was necessary to render the camera movements.

All renderings were made with the standard render engine of Cinema 4D R16/R17. We had to avoid any Global Illumination due to the very tight timeframe for the rendertime. So we had to do a lot of "faking" i.e. some data in the luminance-channels of each material etc.
