PSDArchitecture3edition_SMDlab

Last week, we finished the third edition of the Photoshop for Architecture Wks, organized by SMD and an&.

During the the workshop, Ana Ortiz and Andoni Pombo teach the students how to prepare panels for presentations, post production of plans and sections and post production workflows for render images, all of it using efficient and easy techniques in Adobe Photoshop.

As with other editions, the course is focused on how to manage big files with a lot of layers, effects and blending modes to be able to understand the basic structure of a file; for later on focus on produce stunning images from very basic renderings using efficient Photoshop workflows.

After three intense days, yesterday we finished a Rhinoceros3D workshop in Escola Sert @ COAC Tarragona.

During the 24h of the course, we have been covering topics of architectural modeling and basic rendering inside the Rhino environment. The workshop has provided the participants the knowledge to create and edit 2D and 3D geometries and be able to start working with more advanced surfacing tools, that can be implemented into their own design workflow.

The workshop, that has been divided into three days was focused on how setup this efficient workflow from the 2D architectural drawings to a basic rendering that could represent a project, using a combination of software  Rhino – V-Ray – Photoshop, learning tricks and shortcuts to save time during the whole process.

Also, we would like to thank the students for their commitment and passion during all the days and the Escola Sert for organizing the workshop and inviting SMD as tutors.
