I am an architect, based in London and I have been using Blender since 2007. It is one of the essential tools that I use daily at my job to express design intent. Having seen the great potential that Blender has for architects and designers, I have become inspired to create tutorials that qucikly allow potential newcomers to be able to realise ideas.
