Make The World Wonder

Have you ever dreamt to live in a modern house that no-one had ever thought be possible to build? Something so fancy that even the richest men of the planet would find difficult to bring to life. Or maybe the perfect simplicity is the best sample of architectural perfection? Transform your imagination into floor, walls, ceilings and the roof. Then exchange it to fame.

Design a building of epic architecture with marvelous exterior or stagger us with an interior which could confuse even the best professionals of architecture and interior design. We are going to award the winners in two categories: exterior and interior. This time it is a 2-in-1 challenge!

We have exclusive V-Ray goodies for the winner – the most photo-realistic rendering technology. Or maybe you would you like to get a... Space mouse - created especially for 3D modeling? Or get the solution for design, visualization and architectural communication from Twinmotion? It is just a small part of the prizes! 3D Architects, engineers, designers and artists - come and show your skills worldwide. Only roof is the limit!
