KA-RA developer of 3D Immersion software Twinmotion joins the Abvent Group

van Tianxiao

Hello guys,

I want to share with you a news. Our company KA-RA, the developer of Twinmotion, has joined the Abvent Group yesterday. Abvent took over the global distribution and marketing of Twinmotion in 2015, and today we become one big family.

The next version Twinmotion 2017 will be the first update after the merger of our two companies, and it will be the biggest release ever since Twinmotion3. I'm very looking forward to it!

Here are two videos shared by our users recently, I hope you like it.

KA-RA's focus is rooted in the field of computer assisted architectural design and urban visualization.

Pioneers in the sector, KA-RA soon developed a new and innovative 3D real-time technology. Following the experience acquired over the years, Twinmotion was developed to integrate the design and visualization process, the technology is dedicated to the specific needs of architecture and town planning, generally for complex or large scale projects.

KA-RA was founded by architects Raphael Pierrat and Laurent Vidal who are are supported by a team of experts in 3D simulation. KA-RA is the combined expertise of architects, software engineers and graphic designers specialized in 3D with the mission of developing new ways of thinking, creating and communicating in architecture.

The 3D real-time simulation developed by KA-RA offers technicians and decision makers the capacity to fully control every construction or planning project by visualizing a realistic, interactive 3D virtual model.

This represents a considerable advance in the way projects are approached.

Twinmotion 1 was quickly adopted by some of the biggest names in the sector and have improved their design processes with a more natural, integrated and creative use of visualization.



Thoughts on digital architecture

We've been developing architectural projects for over ten years.

We're like all architects: we ask a lot of our digital tools by daring too much and hoping: often realizing that the tool isn't suitable for what we want to do, or that it prevents us from leveraging its full capabilities because of it's complexity.

The complexity of such tools can not only render them daunting but worse they can make us forget the essence of the idea that we want to express, sidelining us into the meanders of 3D standards: default lighting, default rendering, dull camera movements.

What seems to us primordial in virtual design;

That is, it's not very Virtual.

We felt it was important for us to be able to communicate our most wild ideas with the greatest simplicity, but it was a mistake to believe that 3D design studios would give us an easier life.

So, several years ago, we decided to fill in what we felt was missing from those software dedicated to 3D design and architectural communication, and gave birth to Twinmotion.

But a tool is worth nothing if it stays just theoretic, and it's on projects with agencies like Zaha Hadid Architects, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Agence Tabanlioglu and Airoports de Paris that Twinmotion has proved itself.



The result exceeded our hopes: we held a tool which not only saved us precious time on every project but also allowed us to express ourselves better, more easily, more naturally.

Pushed by our partners, we decided to continue the development which gave us Twinmotion 2, a tool which we hpe is going to make the lives of many architects much easier.

Twinmotion 2 has numerous advantages, it would be difficult to describe them all here in just a few words, but you will be able to learn more about them if you come back regularly to this blog, and to the site which will accompany the launch of Twinmotion 2.

We have created some video snapshots which will help you to quickly understand the potential of the tool. Every one of these videos offers an insight into a specific aspect of Twinmotion 2 and the possibilities that it presents.

Stay tuned to learn more, I'll be back soon.

Raphaël Pierrat, Architect CEO Twinmotion
