Exhibition: "Architectural Visualization as Art." Overview. Photo.
One of the definitions of the word Art describes it as follows - a form of creativity, a way of spiritual self-realization of a person through sensual-expressive means such as music, drawing, poetry, etc.
We believe that in the 21th century architectural visualization has the right to be called Art!
This is not just a formal implementation of drawings and plans of construction objects using 3D programs. Today it is a mixture of computer graphics, the imagination of the author, architectural photography and some other supporting professions, and as a result a powerful tool for self-realization and self-degeneration through architecture. With the help of architectural visualization, it is possible to convey to the viewer the most interesting architectural forms and design ideas, the play of light and shadows, and everything that is difficult for us to catch in reality.
Combining the art of photography and drawing, as well as a huge selection of technical capabilities, it gives us a completely new and unique product that can evoke emotions and feelings, inspire and be worthy of the best galleries and museums in the world.
Thats why in November 2019, we hosted an exhibition dedicated to architectural visualization. It took place in Kiev (Ukraine), in the Gallery of contemporary Art "Ornament Art Space" for two weeks. Twenty eight best renders from the “CG AWARD UA” were exhibited at it, which were sent to the contest during the year.
Such exhibitions are not uncommon in the EU and North America, but this is a special event for Ukraine and the Ukrainian archvis community. For the realization of our idea, an art gallery, as the venue of the exhibition, was the main condition. It took us about two weeks to find a suitable place that would share our views. And we are very glad that in the end we were accepted into «Ornament Art Space», this place was perfect for us. Convenient location in Kiev, beautiful modern design in the loft style, several different halls for exhibitions, and objects of modern art located there perfectly complemented the work of our participants
A special place in the exhibition is held by our sponsors. Three companies providing high-level services for 3D graphics agreed and were able to support us financially. Without them, this exhibition could not have taken place.
For the exhibition this year, we selected 28 works from the participants of our award. From one participant for one best job.

In order to achieve perfect color rendering, we made test prints, after which we adjusted the light and shadows. The most difficult to print was a picture of Aleksand Gnatov. Dark tones prevail there, which in the first test prints were just black.
The opening of the exhibition took place on November 9 at 15:00. At the opening there were guests from different cities of Ukraine. Most of all from Kiev and Lviv, as well as the Dnipro. Toward the end of the first day of the exhibition, some exhibitors and guests took a walk in the evening Kiev, and then celebrated this event in a Ukrainian restaurant «SHO».
Over the next two weeks, the Ornament Art Space gallery met new visitors every day. For all the time, about 250 people visited the exhibition, which is not enough for events of this kind. We are very pleased that the work of our participants was seen live by many people from different fields of activity, and not just CG Artists. After the end of the exhibition, we sent out some of the works to their authors, those who expressed a desire.
We hope that this exhibition will be the first step towards our goal and very soon architectural visualizations will appear in galleries in different cities of Ukraine and not only.
