"I like the idea of architecture, but I always wanted to go beyond the current scope of building technology. Buildings are okay, but I like creating light, space, and form without worrying about the cost of materials or gravity. In the 3d world, the possibilities are unlimited."
When Adam Kruvand was first introduced to the then-new discipline of 3d modeling while pursuing a Bachelor’s in Architecture from the University of Kansas, he knew he had found his niche. Upon graduation Kruvand took a gig working 3d for the international athletic architecture firm HOK Sport in Kansas City. But even this didn’t quite scratch his itch. Working in an architecture firm solidified his desire to work with 3d technology, but since the industry was limited in 2000, Kruvand decided to open his own studio.
Kruvand's goal has always been to bridge the gap between 3d's typical applications and its fantastic possibilities. While at work on industrial product renderings, editorial illustrations, or virtual building tours, he makes a point of applying new techniques to any given problem in order to find the optimal solution.
Four years after founding Studio2a, Kruvand moved from Kansas City to Chicago looking to expand and diversify Studio2a's client list into something a bit more international. Of course, he's still in love with 3d.
