Buildner is pleased to announce the results of its first annual Architect’s Sugar Architectural Visualization Award. A new competition series that seeks outstanding visualizations that must communicate without any text or explanation. The winning designs speak for themselves.

First prize winner Adrian Vindedal from Norway submitted an illustration that captured a sense of impending climate doom. He shared a solemn but beautiful image of two buildings with strange windows and structures in an unknown location, creating a fascinating contrast between strangeness and realism.

Second prize winners Kelly Chun Wai Choi and Rebecca Andre from The University of Melbourne in Australia, submitted an amalgamation of perspectives, axonometries, elevations, plans and sections into one kaleidoscopic scroll reminiscent of Chinese multidimensional landscape scrolls.

Third prize winners Xian Zhu and Xi Luo from Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences in Germany, submitted an illustration created using a manual technique or generated by post-processing which generates a fantastic atmosphere.
