Watch Architect Design and Render The Visitor Experience for a Proposed Major League Sports Museum

Do your clients now expect photo realistic renderings after just schematic design? How did we get here?

It used to be that architects and interior designers could rely on three design phases to study problems and produce their best work: SD, DD and CD. Since the Great Recession, a combination of factors--acquisitive "one-percent" client expectations, and SD-to-CD digital design integration to name two--have created a world where there is no longer a schematic design phase where ideas are tested, only one generating the precise and often premature choices required to produce the photo-realistic renderings we've taught clients to expect. That means designers are now providing two phases for the precise of one. How does your office navigate this new world?

Watch Architect Design and Render The Visitor Experience for a Proposed Major League Sports Museum

The latest in my ongoing series: How Architects and Interior Designers can Design on the iPad Pro. This one shows the process we used to design and present a visitor experience for a major league interactive sports museum. We didn't have enough time or information for digital images, so we had to rely on the most powerful computational platform: the hand.
