    I’ve seen this video already. I must say I am still so impressed of the amazing quality and attention to detail. Its crazy to think that it took him 4 years to complete this video by himself.

    sick video, seen his other vids…. very detailed rendering…
    and for sure hell consumes a lot of time and need super computer for it

    Yes, very nice. I have seen this also already. It must have been a lot of work. I think, he must know wery good, how the details by Louis Kahn etc. look like. At most I like the surrealist part in the end.

    I watched this six times and each time I can’t help but admire not only his skill but his respect for my profession. Now everyone can see architecture through eyes of someone who appreciates all elements of architecture.

    this is a Gattaca rip

    correct me if he was worked on the movie.
    i can give him credit for his exacting diligence to the cinematic genius of gattaca
    its good stuff but it is gattaca and hairy potter and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
    but i imagine those directors sourced there imagery from even later inspirational achievements.

    we all build off the achievements of other men/women

    I have recently come across The Third & The Seventh and I was just stunned after I’ve finished watching it. It’s really really breathtaking, mesmerizing, enchanting and last but not the least, spectacular. Since then, I’ve been watching this video very often and every time I find it astonishing. Impressive indeed…beyond expression in words!
