Interactive 3D Archviz Competition

The world's first contest for interactive real-time 3D architectural presentations
Open to top AEC and 3D studios, 3D artists, freelancers and students from around the world


Design without limits

Architectural and BIM projects are limited to the rules of physics and your creativity as an architect is restricted by the real world. At CL3VER we have decided to forget about limits for a while and give to any 3D artist and architect the possibility to create an interactive real-time 3D architectural presentation of their ideal building.

Create your dream building 3D model using your favorite modelling software (compatible with CL3VER), export it to CL3VER and create an interactive real-time 3D presentation available on any device. Once winners will be announced you will be able to share your presentation with all your friends via social media, or embed it on your website and give visibility to your limitless creativity.

Winners will be announced during the Siggraph 2014 that this year will take place in Vancouver from 10th to 14th August.
