Architizer A+ Awards Finalist and Special Mention

By | brick team, featured | No Comments
We have done lots of victorious competition visuals for architecture studios lately, and the time has come for us to enter that realm as well…
It is a pleasure to see that larger media outlets like Architizer open up to the ever more significant art of architecture visualization. The Modeling & Render category in this year’s A+ Awards – with special focus on visualization qualities – is a great example of that approach. We applied with two projects, and the results are ecstatic: Sosnowiec Sports Complex is among the five finalists and Oulu Station received a Special Mention Award. This is already a huge recognition for us in the architect world.
Winners are out on the 11th of April. Meanwhile, you can participate in the public voting until the 30th of March: https://goo.gl/zCAIOi

We hope to share good news after the winners are announced!

Archviz Conferences in 2016

By | brick team, featured | No Comments
This conference season has become seriously busy! As the industry is growing bigger, such events become ever more important. We are digital guys and girls, but still there is great interest in knowledge-sharing, panel discussions and personal interaction. Or it is just because of the beer? 2016 put Brick on the fast-lane: we presented at two major events, brainstormed at a pioneer summit and visited some. Most importantly, we got to know many awesome people, and learned a bunch of new things.

 

d2 – digital design conference 2016

Brick founders András and Attila held a presentation about Brick, in particular about our core production mechanisms. It was a tough challenge to condense all our thoughts in 1 hour, but the result was rewarding. d2 is a relatively young, but rapidly emerging event with always great atmosphere and amazing people. Check out Fabio’s vlog for some cool videos!

CG2 – Code for Art 2016

The Chaosgroup guys invited us to talk about our VR and software development at their annual meetup in Sofia. Attila and Peter, our developer gurus gave a smashing presentation for a large audience. CG2 is organized by Chaosgroup, the smart guys behind VRay. We made a lot of priceless connections, and hopefully future collaborations as well.

AVA – Architectural Visualization Association

At d2 we got to know the famous Victor Enrich, who is the founder and spiritual father of this initiation. The basic concept is to organize summits for the archviz industry that is presently becoming sovereign and growing independent. He invited great minds to discuss really important and up-to-date issues, to share knowledge and to shape ideas. It has become obvious that everyone deals with the same issues, and such discussions help facilitating solutions beneficial for the overall industry. András was one of the participants of the panel discussions held at the impressive MACBA (Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art). He returned to the Budapest office in a very eager mood.

Last, but not least, there is one more event for this year: a two day workshop in Vienna held by Brick guys, organized by d2. András (CEO) and Marton (PM) are really cool teachers, we grant that! December 9-10, Vienna. Tickets are selling out quickly, so if you are interested, get yours as soon as possible.

 

Based on this year’s experiences, we are really looking forward 2017!

Bigger, better, brighter – the new Brick office is officially occupied

By | brick team, featured | No Comments
As the brick team is constantly growing, we had to find a solution for space. Fortunately, the office on the other side of the corridor in our favourite building (former Goldberger textile factory) was empty. So after months of drilling and refurbishing, today we have finally moved to this brighter, more spacious office, and made the old one relax area for now.  Yet another big step for us, a very joyful one indeed.

 

The recent conditions in one image:

 

And some pictures from the big moving day:

It looks almost exactly like the old office

The brick guys are super-handy also when it comes to physical work

 

The boss is being a boss

 

No more 12 hours sitting

 

… and probably the coolest part of the office – the administration-communication-graphic design trio paradise!

 

Dorte Mandrup wins design competition

By | featured, projects, Uncategorized | No Comments

“A visionary design concept allows the building to float above the ground as if gravity doesn’t exist.”

 

We love to visualize great concepts, and this particular project proved to be outstanding. Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter has won the design competition for the extension of The Danish Society of Engineers’ headquarters in Copenhagen. Congratulations!

In-house Greenbox Studio

By | brick team, featured, projects | No Comments
We had a dream from the very beginning: our own greenbox studio. Well, it is true that good things come to those who wait because it is finally happening! Having an in-house greenbox studio gives tremendous freedom in creative direction: now we can flexibly add real characters to the scenes, thus making every movie and still even more realistic and personalized. See how we do that:

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope to share some examples with you soon!

Brick Visualizations at the Oxford Station Design Competition

By | featured, projects | No Comments
The design of AHR Architects visualized by Brick has been selected as winner at the Oxford Station Design Competition. Not only the professional jury appreciated AHR’s plans, but 70% of public voters favored their design as well. It has been an honor to be part of this great achievement, and an equally awesome feedback on the competency of our visualizations.

Architectural Visualization Conferences

We have visited two of the big nearby architectural visualization conferences recently. Both of them were amazing, we had a lot of fun and most importantly heard some interesting insights from the industry fellows.
We will definitely return next year, maybe not only as a visitor….
Thank you d2 Conference (Vienna) and SOA Academy (Venice) for organizing these awesome events!
Enjoy the documentation!
