The Challenge of Tomorrow: ArchViz Competition Now Open!
It’s time to get your creative thinking cap on!
The Challenge of Tomorrow is an exciting architectural visualization competition brought to you by Ronen Bekerman, in partnership with TMRW.SE.
Below, we take a closer look at the competition, which is open until May 30.
About The Challenge of Tomorrow - TMRW 2020
TMRW 2020 invites participants to design and visualize the architecture of tomorrow, set in 2040, within the context of the Hudson Yards in New York City.
Hudson Yards is New York’s newest and largest development – a 28 acre LEED Gold neighborhood, home to a mix of residential, commercial, retail and public open spaces.
Challenge participants are requested to submit at least three still images that tell the story of their entry. There is also the opportunity to provide an interactive experience via VR.
TMRW 2020 provides a competitive, yet educational environment in which entrants are encouraged to engage and provide feedback to other participants. It also aims to challenge and inspire creators to showcase their best work, helping to push not only themselves, but the boundaries of ArchViz.
As always, I do this Challenge to spark innovation, raise the quality standards, and motivate our field to be better. With TMRW as a partner on this one, we’re also looking for their potential next star 3d artist.

Advice from last year’s winner
Last year’s winner, Nicolo Paolino, spoke with Ronen Bekerman about his journey before and after the competition and shares his tips to those entering TMRW 2020.
Paolino, who studied architecture and graduated in Milan, now works for Tomorrow Architects, who are based in Sweden. He recommends creating realistic renders but keeping things simple and paying attention to the competition rules.
…Well, since I haven’t done any competition before, the first thing I told my self was to keep things simple. I needed to be competitive, so at least I had to follow all the rules…Of course, some things changed during the process, with new ideas coming up. I’ve also tried to set the views from the very early stage and stick with them, avoiding finding myself with too many options to choose from.
