Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Pavilion, Alessandro Mauro (3D)


Title: Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Pavilion
Name: Alessandro Mauro
Country: Italy
Software: Maya, mental ray, Photoshop

This is my latest personal work. the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion

the purpose of the project is “to feel and to recreate” that
space balancing the orthogonal and abstract, between full and empty, where games of reflexes, shines and illusion find their way among marble walls, metallic surfaces, pillars cruciform chrome steel, glass and travertine floors; elements don’t confuse but coexist in an asymmetrical space, which never closes in on itself, rising the border between nature and humankind.

really hope you like it!


Wow, I like this, it’s detailed. 5 Stars.


nice renders… lights… colors…
good work!


Top notch mental ray goodness!


Nice photos :wink:

Is it all 3D? Or are the plants matt painted?

Really like the colour palette, the first image with it’s subdued blues and browns, also the night shots’ warmth.

Son of a bitch! Can you touch on some of your lighting setups?


uuuu great !.


Amazing piece of work ! I love it :slight_smile:


Thank you very much, I really appriciate your words.

Yes asarya, it is all 3d istances plants! The poly count is very hight and render take from two to four hours.

All images take illumination from sun&sky system, density to 1 for exteriors in order to take the darkness for short distances, 0.05 for interior to obtain a good compromise for render times.So final gather for big area and AOcolorbleed with very large distances for little and middle details.
lwf in maya and gamma control in post.

Thank you and sorry for my english :stuck_out_tongue:
