Architectural Renderings are useful
for commercial applications in helping to satisfy
city officials and neighborhood residents as to how
the building will appear when complete. It can
also be used to help build customer interest when
used to show what the new facilities will look like.
Most people wouldn't think about
doing a residential visualization due to the extra
expense involved. But, if there is any
question about how something is going to look when
complete, it's far cheaper to change it before it's
built than after. Doing a visualization allows
you to see just how it will look when it's complete.
Visualizations can often be used by City, County,
and State Governments to help with gaining support
for proposed projects. Often, these projects
are funded by bond issues which require that an
election process take place. Having a
visualization so that the citizens can see what they
are voting on can help in passing these bond issues.
Churches often use an
architects rendering of the proposed building or
perhaps renovation or addition to help with their
fund raising efforts. The visualizations are
also a great way for the architect to make his
vision clear to the building committee or
colleges can utilize presentation renderings to help
in preparing for voting on tax increases, applying
for grants, and other fund raising efforts.
They are also a good way to help build enthusiasm
with the teachers, students, parents, and the local
throughs and fly bys, can be used to give a better
feel for the overall scope of the project and how it
will appear as you walk through the building or
around it when complete. Animations are great
when making a presentation to a large or small
gathering where a large screen TV can be used to
take a virtual walk trough the building.
