Architecture in Perspective: Archviz & Design for Entertainment


Thursday, October 3rd, 2019, 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm


Gnomon is excited to welcome creative and architectural design firm Kilograph as well as the American Society of Architectural Illustrators for an in-depth look at architectural visualization and design in films, television, and games.


As a kick off to the American Society of Architectural Illustrators’ annual Architecture in Perspective conference weekend, join us for a panel discussion exploring the development of compelling visual narratives around future cities and the influence of contemporary architectural representation in entertainment design. Panelists will discuss their expertise in creating compelling imagery of architecture and atmosphere in a variety of applications and exploring human relationships with the experience of places. Whether imagining futures or designing fantasy concept art, what matters in the end is more about the story you’re trying to tell and if it allows the idea it represents to emerge.


This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so be sure to RSVP and arrive in good time to secure a place in line. If you are unable to attend the event in person, you can watch the live stream on our Twitch Channel.


Attendees are welcome to join a guided tour of Gnomon before the event. The tour will start at 7pm from the check-in station. Attendee check-in will open at approximately 6:30 PM and a valid Eventbrite RSVP will be required to get an event wristband. Admission is first-come first-served and a wristband does not guarantee entry in cases that the stage reaches capacity.




The Architecture in Perspective conference invites students, professionals and enthusiasts of architecture and environmental art to join other artists and design professionals from around the world to share in their common passion. This year, the conference will be held in sunny Hollywood CA for three days of sharing ideas, techniques, and a love for architectural illustration. If you'd like to learn more about the conference, please visit ASAI's website.


Gnomon's Bachelor of Fine ArtsCertificate in Digital Production, and 10-week individual courses are designed to develop well-rounded artists that are skilled in the diverse disciplines within 3D production. For those outside of the US, virtual classroom-style online courses are also available.
