The Modern House
by Leonardo Monteiro Silva
Renderer: Unreal Engine
My name is Leonardo Monteiro Silva, I'm from Brasil and I've been working with regard to archiviz for about 16 years now and I've never been so exited about the possibilities. I started using Blender some years ago while I was learning basic organic modeling and now I just love how the software developed to its actual stage. It's fast and filled with useful content for architects and designers. For me, it's the best 3D modelling software out there, although I'm a 3DS MAX user.
I recently learned Unreal engine and got amazed with what could I achieve with it. For archiviz, it is one of the best software to use, with a great documentation and a smooth learning curve. In it, you can actually visit and interact with your project, I believe this is the future of architectural presentation.
About "the Modern House:"
I think there is a lot of room for improvement and a number of things in the scene could have been done better, but I'm happy with the results so far and you will see better things from me in the near future.
