The incredible Len Lye Contemporary Art Museum – New Plymouth New Zealand. The animation was produced around 5 years ago and posed a number of technical difficulties to produce – namely the number of reflections that required to be bounced around the 3d environment.
One of our more interesting projects where Buildmedia worked with Pattersons to visual test the way sunlight would reflect on various design options for the new Len Lye art gallery.
Components of the wall were 3d modelled to scale and light photons were simulated to bounce around the scene to ensure there were no concentrated hotspots appearing on the interior and exterior of the design.
