Certificate of Competence in 3D Design – Architectural visualization and Animation Specialization

Certificate of Competence in 3D Design – Architectural visualization and Animation Specialization

Many clients do not understand floor plans and elevations. To the layman, these interpretations for houses and buildings are difficult to visualize. 2D and CAD drawings can come across as complicated without being able to convey the sense of space and volume a structure occupies. When the same information is presented in the form of a 3D architectural design or walkthrough, it becomes easy to comprehend. Architectural visualization and animation is considered to have a bright future. This is because more and more architects and real estate developers are including computer visualizations and animations in their marketing programmes.

In this twelve-month course, you will explore the techniques of 3dsmax, Maya, Photoshop and V-Ray programmes. You will initially be immersed in design fundamental units which include drawing and illustration, colour theory, principles and elements of design, typography, idea generation and creative communication. You will learn to design and create realistic architectural visualizations of building and interiors and walk-through videos or fly-throughs.

Learning and Assessment
You will learn through a wide variety of teaching and learning methods including practical workshops, lectures, collaborative work and peer group critiques. Your assessment will be based on a submission of portfolio that demonstrates proficiency and excellence from a professional’s perspective.
