Title: Virtual Matsumoto Castle

 

 

Exhibition & Summary

 

Inspired by a quote by Stephen Turnbull Ňa completely different developmental history, were built in a completely different way and were designed to withstand attacks of a completely different natureÓ, I did research on Japanese castles and wrote a short paper about Matsumoto castle, which is a premier historic castle. Then I explored different types software to find a suitable one for my 3D modeling of the castle and I choose to use 3DS Max to model a render of representation to share.
