  2. Vigil, Antonio Updated

    Albuquerque, New Mexico


    Project: 35 º | 106º
    The spatial environment that comprises the metropolis of Albuquerque [35º | 106º] is a unique condition that has evolved as a crossroads of culture, architecture and infrastructure. The geography and urban morphology created here is a condition unlike any other in the world. As designers we are faced with the development of new technologies, global information systems and the dilution of cultural specificity. This studio will embark in an architectural study utilizing the metropolis of Albuquerque as a laboratory to probe for conditions that define this unique context. This studio will investigate the context of Albuquerque and produce speculations that challenge our current urban fabric. We are interested in analytically probing the urban context and searching for opportunities where design can improve our environment. Through this reading a series of cartographic mappings will be generated that explore these conditions and a design problem will be formulated that will manifest into a program for development in studio. As designers we have to be fluid in how we operate and design at a multiplicity of scales. The ability to understand how virtual and analog systems are creating new spatial conditions in our environment is critical for designers to understand. This knowledge is essential for developing new design strategies for a better more sustainable social environment.

  4. Van der Horst, Steve Updated

    Connells Point, New South Whales


    "I am a freelance illustrator with 20 years experience. Previous to that I worked in the art departments of a variety of design and advertizing firms. I worked exclusively with traditional media and had no intention of switching to computers as business was brisk and work was abundant ... so why bother. Then my accountant said I was paying too much tax and I needed to find ways to reduce this. What about a new car? I didn't need one! What about a computer? I didn't need one of those either, but I thought it might be good for accounts and the kids might like to play the games. So I bought one ... stupid me! Consequently, I haven't used a paint brush or air-brush since and I had to buy computers for my kids as they couldn't get near mine! I now use the latest G4 Macs and about eighteen programs (at last count) to produce illustrations for design, advertising, architectural, web, promotion and packaging clients. form•Z is the 3D program that features in most of my work. There is so much in this program that I have yet to discover it all and utilise it in my work. I am enjoying exploring the creative possibilities."

    Product and Image

    "Our company offers design know-how that addresses your needs. We cover a range from product design that adapts well to international export markets, to corporate design and development of entire corporate identities. Successful design of a product is getting more and more important. With technique and quality becoming equally important, innovative product design can become an important marketing factor. Behind efficient design stand technical, professional, functional, ergonomic and, last but not least, esthetical considerations. With more than 10 years of 3D modelling experience we find form•Z to be the easiest and quickest modeller, and to nicely compliment our ideals about efficient design. Be it complicated lighting effects for interior design solutions or high quality surface textures and decals, its rendering capabilities are without doubt the best around."

  6. Vahlsing, Richard Updated

    Round Hill, Virginia

    sputart@aol.com


    "I have been using form•Z for very basic modelling for several years now, but I have only recently started exploring some of the software's more advanced features and rendering capabilities. At this time, what you see is what I have managed to finish. Only recently have I started delving into form•Z's power (thanks to Roger Harris' excellent handbook) and, I must say, I am very impressed. It blows away other modellers and the renderer is quite fast if you follow good modelling techniques."

  7. URS Updated

    http://www.boxstudio.com

    "We have been using form•Z in the Cleveland office for the past two years now and are very pleased with the product. We are also appreciative of AutoDesSys's excellent technical support. form•Z has become an integral tool for design with all of our projects. In concert with physical modeling, and a prodigious amount of hand sketching, our form•Z savvy design team works together to quickly build base models and develop design options. Over time, we have begun to consolidate many of our models to create extremely large models of urban centers, such as one we have developed of the city of Akron. These, in turn, allow us to respond to potential work with an incredible resource at our disposal. All of our images, generated in form•Z, are further developed with Photoshop."

  11. Troxtel Design Updated

    John Troxtel
    Glendale, California

    mailbox@troxteldesign.com


    Troxtel Design uses form•Z to create set design and previsualize architectural elements for Hollywood.

    "form•Z is not [just] a CAD package in my mind. It is a very specific tool for architectural or mechanical visualization. CAD packages don't have a fraction of the modeling capabilities found in form•Z. With form•Z we get results very quickly. ItÕs not too tough for new young people to get up and be productive in our fast paced results-oriented studio. My advice to other shops: keep form•Z in your toolbox. You'll need it."

    Not only will Troxtel be lending his form•Z expertise to the big screen once again with work on another Sodderberg film, a sci-fi spectacular called, "Solaris," he will also soon be using form•Z to make film history. "We have just been awarded the contract to design The Motion Picture Hall of Fame-a new interactive museum complex here in LA. We'll use form•Z to model the interior and all of the exhibits."

    bneetz@transworldmarketing.com


    “I started at Trans World in 1985 as an industrial designer. Everything was drawn by hand at that time. In the early 90’s we started using various 3D rendering packages, ultimately committing to form•Z as a best value option for our creative department.

    Trans World Marketing uses form•Z daily as a quick 3D representation of display concepts which can be e-mailed to the client for changes and approval. Our clients require renderings with heavily mapped surfaces which accurately represent their product in the retail environment.

    The car represented here is a personal project which gave me a chance to use form•Z‘s c-curve tools.”

    jradford@thinkoutsidethesquare.com


    Thinking Outside the Square, Inc. is a 3D design/build firm focusing on retail spaces, interpretive and museum environments, and trade show exhibits.

    “Since our projects are a blend of disciplines, architectural, interior and graphic design, we need a tool that is just as diverse. form•Z allows us to create anything imaginable in addition to giving the client an accurate picture of the end result before any commitment is made.

    I have been working with form•Z for about 3 years, but was formally trained in Alias Wavefront, I’ve found that form•Z is much easier to use. Originally, I would build models in form•Z then post render in Adobe Photoshop, but as I’ve become more proficient I’ve realized almost all of my work can be completed within form•Z. Unlike traditional design firms, in many cases the design is not finalized before the model is started, since form•Z is such a fluid program most revisions can easily be made in a short amount of time. The ease of integration with other software and platforms is a great feature as well. It is an excellent complement to our work.”

  17. Tesene, Dan Updated

    Dan Tesene grew up in rural Iowa, where, from a young age, he developed a deep appreciation for the beauty and intricacies of nature. Tesene completed his undergraduate degree at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where he became fascinated in the relationships between mechanical and natural systems, manifested through his 3D modeling work. After graduation, Tesene was awarded the Jerome Foundation Fellowship for the Arts and also won the 2005 form•Z Joint Study Award of Distinction for Fabrication. During his fellowship, Dan began analyzing the process of prototyping and the breakdown of forms, which led him to the work of Etienne-Jules Marey and other revolutionary inventors who laid the foundation for this type of thinking. After completing his fellowship, Tesene traveled to Cairo and Alexandria where he participated in the group show Convergence. Tesene now lives and works in New York City.

    sven.johnson@verizon.net


    "As a freelancer with nearly 20 years experience dealing with all sorts of architects, interior designers, and landscape architects in New York City, I have come to rely on the versatility and great compatibility form•Z offers in translating all sorts of data sets encountered out there in the design world.

    And once the design information is brought in, form•Z is the quickest yet also the most capable modeling package out there to create real solid-geometry models that play well with the demands of serious lighting and rendering tasks. Not to mention the constant "torture" of continual adjustments required by my clients as the visualization process informs the design process.

    I'm very excited by the huge improvements I'm discovering every day as I get to know form•Z 7, and the partnership with Maxwell Render and forthcoming other major render engines, which will continue to enhance form•Z as the modeler of choice for creative designers and visualizers."

  20. Sumner, David Updated

    Brooklyn, New York

    http://www.davidsumnerdesign.com

    “I am a stage designer, painter, and former scenic artist by trade. After studying stage design with the late Howard Bay at Brandeis, I left school and flip-flopped a bit between nightclub designer and charge scenic artist at Boston’s Huntington Theatre. In 1983, I left Boston for New York and created David Sumner Design. Today, some twenty years later, the DSD portfolio includes designs for three Olympic games, a respectable track record of Broadway and European musicals, a bit of dance and television work, a short stint teaching 3D at Rhode Island School of Design, and numerous exhibits and corporate shows for many of the Fortune 500 elite.

    Through the years, my traditional painting and stage design training of airbrush, paintbrush and pencil proved to be a great foundation when working with form•Z and other 3D applications. I am a painter first. Most of my work these days involves designing, modeling and rendering large spaces composed of countless objects, not dissimilar from a treatment on a movie set. However, unlike the film world, stage work usually means rendering the entire world in one pass. Sure, much of the modeling is fairly straightforward, but the power of form•Z really shines when tackling those complicated forms such as realistic upholstered furniture, tensile buildings, and draped fabric. Every show is different and modeling challenges pop up all the time. Every day is a new day.

    "When working with advertising agencies, as we do, its is always crucial to deliver images 'as soon as possible'. In our work we frequently have to model some truly strange things from scratch and produce several different renderings from them, before we can select the one image we need. As we use form•Z for this work, the program has proven not only 'professionally fast' but also 'reliable' as a true partner would be. Without sacrificing quality due to that we are required to work fast, form•Z never lets us down."

    "I started using form•Z in the undergraduate architecture program I completed. I became fluent working at an architecture firm that uses form•Z. I use form•Z for every project in the preliminary stages before I start the working drawings. It is an excellent tool to visualize design ideas and structural conditions in three dimensions before construction. form•Z can also provide accurate and beautiful renderings. I usually model the entire project down to the trim around the windows in form•Z, then assign surface textures to the model, render it with a black background and a reflection of the view image, then take it into Photoshop and insert the background and landscape."
