Brutal Shadow is an explorative CGI architectural visualization short film that was conceived as a studio project here at Tigrelab. Through 12 iconic brutalist buildings, where light and shadow take center stage, this short film explores architectural form and atmosphere.

“Brutalism does not question what has been achieved until now: it is an evolutionary, not revolutionary movement.” (Jürgen Joedicke, 1969)

Through a meticulous study of internationally renowned buildings, we modelled a significant portion of these architectural masterpieces using Cinema 4D, leaving no detail overlooked. Taking advantage of Unreal Engine’s power, we achieved the desired textures and lighting effects. By carefully manipulating light and shadows, these buildings come to life, showcasing their evolution throughout the day.
