"Lighting has been and still is one of my obsessions when creating art. I think it's a key element on many levels: as a tool for composition, narration, in the emotions it provokes." ~ Alex Roman

We love what computer visualization can do for our clients, design process, and clients. We work with it enough to have a special appreciation of beautiful works like this, which raise the medium itself to the level of art.
Every instant of this surreal film, in which the camera itself becomes the narrator, was created by Alex Roman using nothing but digital computer graphics, his imagination, and architectural drawings. The film features the architecture of some of the most iconic architects of our time in stunning, dreamlike landscapes. If you have not seen the film, I recommend allocating twelve and a half minutes to do so right here - just click the 'Play' button below.
