Archi-Visualization – Rendering Styles

These two images appeared over at WAN on Nov. 16th in an article entitled “Masterplanning Mumbai“, detailing a masterplan project for?Bombay Boulevard, Mumbai, that was recently awarded to BDP.

Now, I’m not looking to discuss the project itself really. Rather, I’d like to know what people think about the two different rendering styles employed by the firm for this one proposal. After the comments received regarding the stunning Farnsworth House images created by Peter Guthrie [which can be seen here], I’m curious to know how people feel about these renderings – neither of which photorealism [obviously].

Also, what do people think about these digital models that look like physical models? By which I mean images that make no attempt at looking like photorealistic representations of the final product – but which instead look like simple scale models of a project.

Furthermore, if you can produce something as rich, dynamic, and detailed as the sketch above, is something in the style of the rendering below necessary?
