3DA: How did you start working in 3D field? How much time has passed and what kind of studies did you do?
MM: Visualization has became one of most important part of architectural practice so when I started my bachelor degree in architecture in 2005, also start using 3d software. Even after taking my master in architecture I am still fascinated by this field. I also am a semi-professional photographer so I studied a lot in this field as well and it has great influence in my works. Recently, I am studying light physics, dynamics for better understanding of world.
3DA: Which are your favorite software and plugins for your daily projects?
MM: I mainly use 3ds Max, Mudbox, Marvelous Designer and V-Ray for my daily work because of my habit, but I also use Octane renderer and Maxwell and Corona for some project. And I mostly use huge pack of scripts and plugin namely Forest pack, Railclone, Rayfire, Para3d, Ylilammi plugins, Pavel Kuznetsov plugins and Advanced painter, Lele pack, Rappa tools and etc.
3DA: Tell us something about a project that gave you great satisfactions
MM: I think I have been never satisfied with my results because I know it can be better and I don’t have much time to work on them to reaching almost perfection. However, every project has a time limit hence we gave up upon it. Despite this fact, there is always a project that is closer to your ideal and in my case it was Glen Lake Tower project that I and my two friends (Yones Bana, Farhang Malek – members of Chalipa Studio) have been visualized for a workshop in Tehran.
3DA: From where do you take inspiration for your artworks?
MM: I am a movie maniac so I inspire by lot of cinematic scene and also I usually see many pictures from archdaily.com and 500px.com that always inspire me.
3DA: How do you live this period of economic crisis? How is it in your country?
MM: Admittedly I am not satisfied however, I can’t really compare with before. Undoubtedly, in Iran because of international economic sanctions it is getting worse every day.
3DA: What would you suggest to people that are approaching to 3D and architecture?
MM: I recommend to study cinema and photography and color theory before everything. As a matter of fact, softwares are just tools in your hand to do art and in art your visions is everything hence accustomed to seeing art and paying attention to it.
