Hello,
I want to share my latest project:

Tribute to the architecture icon
New York Times Building

New York Times building is one of the most recognizable pieces of architecture in the world. The tower was designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop and FXFOWLE Architects, with Gensler providing the interior design.
It’s based on the west side of Midtown Manhattan, surrounded by the New York skyscrapers. The New York Times Building is the eighth-tallest building in the city.

It’s not a secret that New York Times building is one of our favorites. The tower is unique, because of the steel construction placed on the external side of the building. It gives an individual, industrial touch to the whole creation.

Wikipedia says -„In excess of 95% of the structural steel was recycled.” – that’s a quite impressing fact.

When we decided to prepare a set of the images dedicated to NYT building, we knew that a complete 3d environment would help us. Mainly, because of the sense of freedom during the cameras selection process. We tested many views and many light options, but we felt that the tower looks best soaked up in the golden rays of the sunset.

We sincerely appreciate every minute spent on this project.
C&C are always welcome!

The only thing i can say other than astounding.  & this would take many more hours to compile...more dirt into the vehicles and streets NYC is a dirty place.  This is the Only CC other than... You did justice to the ("failing") NY Times building.

Leave it to an American to insert some political agenda.  So sorry.  Congrats.

Hello,

Thank you for all the comments. I also used hdri's but I very like the sun+sky, and this is my only light source in half of the shots.
Sorry for the size of the images. They are too big because they didn't scale down after uploading. I don't know how to change the size to fit the page and zoom after clicking.

Best,
Rafal

Spent a lot of timing working in that building, your shot from the upper floors looking down the side of the building really brought back memories.  It is an amazing building and you did an incredible job recreating it.

Incredible! So much attention to detail. I cant begin to think how many different type of materials you must have made.

Amazing work guys, best of the year by far. It would be great if you could do a making of. Was it a commissioned work or you did just for fun?
