Ken Zimmerman has been producing high quality still image renderings and animation for architects and developers in the Los Angeles area for more than 20 years. Projects range from residential and retail to institutional. Ken has worked in the architectural industry for almost 25 years and considers collaboration and a high level of craft to be key components integral to the success of his work. Through studying at SCI-Arc and the many years of experience, he can appreciate the level of work ethic and thought that go into presenting an architects ideas and passions for design.

Delineating Place

Executing a set of renderings or an animation is not merely plugging a model into specialized software and assigning a specific set of parameters. But rather, it is an investigation, and unveiling of the story of the architecture. It is an intimate and personal journey where collaboration is a key component of the process. Every delineation is special with it's own character, time and sense of place. Through technique and a critical eye, it is ZimmermanVisual's goal to express the essence of the place.


Ken uses the latest in hardware and software in producing architectural renderings with a photo-realistic look, or conceptual projects with more of a watercolor/painterly feel. A typical project would include a set of high resolution renderings or a short animation. But Ken is also skilled in photo-composite renderings (combining photography with rendered architecture), VR renderings (360 degree interactive renderings), conceptual renderings (digital watercolor technique).
