Architecture Project 2-Pushing Revit’s Capabilities

In my last post, Architecture Project 2-Temple for Seeing Part 2, I talked about how we had to transfer our designs in to Revit, a 3-D modeling program. Since then, I really tried to see how far I could push it’s rendering capabilities. Let me tell you, I am impressed. The renderings look like pictures and make you really feel like you’re in the space. Revit lets you see the light and shadows in the space at any time of day by simply changing the sun settings. I added some artificial lights and rendered it using a nighttime sun setting, and they came out really well. It also lets you pick a location of your model, which can literally be anywhere in the world. I chose Barbados because it is close to the equator and will allow light to enter the space all year round. Here’s a sample of the renderings I generated.
