VisualARQ examines modern (and not-so-modern) architecture

Do you think that new technologies are only for modern architecture? Do you think that design software applies only to new projects of engineering or design?

Look around and you will find out that what surrounds you was not built yesterday nor, perhaps, this century. We are more than just heirs of the past, we are its inhabitants.

In VisualARQ we know well that if you are an architect, engineer or designer, you will have on the table projects to show your ability to innovate. Your creations may continue or break a tradition, but can not forget it. Technology does not forget the past. It revives it.

For centuries, the mallet and chisel in the hands of a skilled craftsman were the instruments with which we left an artistic heritage. Industrialization facilitated these processes for its culmination by the human hand. Today, the software design is the starting point of the current work of a craftsman.

Rhino is a 3D software that goes beyond the present, it looks to the past and returns us its best version.
We are going to show two examples of facades and ornamental restoration.

Let's travel to New York to learn about two very different restoration cases: architectural and artistic. The tour will end in Barcelona to see a contemporary use of traditional elements.
