My name is Minh Tran and I am the author of Architecture Inspirations. While in school, I've acquired skills in architectural visualizations that have gotten attention from some of my classmates. They often asked me how I have come to achieve such renderings and some even asked me to show them some tips and tricks. While I have succeeded in teaching a few the way I use my programs, it is time consuming and quite unproductive to repeat a long process in such a short amount of time. Hence, this website is intended be used as a means to share my rendering techniques with my fellow classmates and those who are interested in creating architectural visualizations.

DBIA 2014 national Design-Build Student Competition Finalists


This was the award ceremony of the Design Build Competition. It was an honor to be among the top 3 teams who get to present at this conference. We got 3rd place, which was a little disappointing because I reaallly wanted that first place. But then again, we got 3rd place! In a national competition among 35 other teams. That was pretty amazing :)
