Eye Candy for Architects—Chaos Group Releases New Reel

Chaos Group’s latest ArchViz Reel features mouth-wateringly beautiful architectural visuals caught in still and motion for some of the world’s most elite architects by the most talented visualization studios and agencies across the globe. Take a look.


The Chaos Group, makers of the popular V-Ray Next rendering software, have released a new architectural visualization reel, and the work is quite stunning.

The reel features beautiful work from 16 of the top archviz studios in the world. These studios include Boston/Cambridge’s world-renowned Neoscape and Los Angeles-based Kilograph—both studios Architosh has written about in the past—plus DBOX, Brick, The Boundary, Factory Fifteen, Beauty & the Bit, TiltPixel, Vividus, Squint/Opera, Uniform, Binyan, Blkhaus, Polymachine, Steelblue, and VStudios.

01 – Peninsula Place by Santiago Calatrava, visualized by Uniform. This is shown in the Chaos Group reel.

Prominent projects in the new Chaos Group reel include Santiago Calatrava’s first project in the UK—Peninsula Place—rendered by Liverpool-based archviz company Uniform.

The reel also showcases the Renzo Piano-designed oasis in Miami and the award-winning film by DBOX featuring an urban safari for the 200 East 59th in NYC, and it also showcases the massive Neoscape project for Bai Da Tou which you can see here and in the images below.

Here is the new reel below. Further image stills continue after.

Looking At Some Projects In Detail

One of the more massive and amazing archviz projects ever done is Neoscape’s work for the enormous Ba Dai Tou project by architects John Portman & Associates. We have written about this project before in 2018 when news came out about the incredible visualization tour de force. (see: Architosh: “Neoscape Visualizes Revitalized Shanghai Waterfront in Futuristic 4K Video,” 3 Jan 2018). Our article covers all the nitty gritty details of the endeavor. The video for it can be seen here.

The John Portman-designed project is convincingly told through the 4K lens of an 8-minute long visualization masterpiece. (02 – 03).

03 – Another stunning view from inside the visualized project of Bai Da Tou by John Portman & Associates, visualized by Neoscape.

Other projects from inside the new Chaos Group ArchViz Reel include projects by MAD, Renzo Piano and Dalian Wanda Group, and a fun project by DBOX.

04 – A visualized project by TiltPixel for the project Harbin Center, which was rendered in V-Ray and modeled in FormZ.

The Harbin Cultural Center by MAD architects was a competition-winning project. (see 04 above). The finished building is remarkably identical to the rendering you see above. The building is an opera house and it is worth checking out the project on the architect’s website.
