3d Architectural Visualization and Design: Arial View, Original Skyscraper Design

In the spirit of trying to post more often I have a couple of 3d renderings of some towers I recently designed when playing around in 3ds Max.

At work I am heavily relied on for creating a lot of interior spaces. Because of my limited opportunities to get to build out exterior scenes, I decided to put together a scene from a building design I recently created in a little down time I had. Below is the base design before adding context such as the forest, roads, cars, ocean, HDRI sky, and additional buildings:

I was very happy with the design I came up with and I received a lot of compliments from our senior Architects and Designers who happened to see my building on my desktop wallpaper. 

In the future I hope to be able to add more camera angles and continue juicing up this scene as I have more spare time. I will be sure to post if I do. after designing the bones of this building, I have realized how far my understanding of architectural design has come in the past couple of years while working for my current employer and I am inspired to continue creating my own designs in the months to come. Thank you for reading!
