Buildner Architecture Competitions has published the results of its second Architectural Visualization Award. The competition sought “outstanding architectural visualizations of all kinds” to be submitted in a ‘silent competition’ format without the use of text to support the imagery.
“Visualizations are critically important to the industry, the primary communications tool for architects and designers to express creativity, design intent, and aspirations,” the organizers said about the competition. “Visualizations are limitless in their scope, and can be used to describe details, spaces, buildings, systems, and even entire cities.”
The winning entries have been republished below.
First Prize: Distant Past by Adrian Vindedal
Citation by juror Stephen Pimbley: "The image captures a sense of impending climate doom with dust blowing and the stark desolation of abandoned land save for what seems to be two elevated dwellings. Devastating consequences for the community who have faced drought and wind erosion that is very redolent in an image that spans across an unobstructed plain. Solemn but beautiful."
Second Prize: Melbourne Protest Art Institute: Make Art Not War by Kelly Chun Wai Choi and Rebecca Andre (The University of Melbourne)
Citation by juror Xuanru Chen: "This visualization is readable as an eloquent and imaginative story. The delicate mixture of plans, sections and perspectives creates a collage of various scenes, which are connected by a railroad with maps and notes pinned along the way. The massive details form a journey of time and space, and keep the audience reading into it."
Third Prize: Back me to the Earth by Xian Zhu and Xi Luo (Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences)
Citation by juror Xuanru Chen: "It is an image that makes viewers wonder: When were those structures built and whom were they built for? Were they still occupied by humans since only cats and birds were easily recognized? If not, what happened? The beautiful and artistic visualization prolong the viewer’s wonder, and finally they are lost in thoughts."
