3D visualization specialist
Daniel Linder and his Imagonauten team can take anything that can be imagined and make it a 3D visual reality in still or moving images. Whether for architectural, real estate, or trade show projects; prototyping, branding, advertising or other design projects; or movie pre-visualization for film and television projects, he and his team eagerly take on any image related challenge clients can present and deliver bespoke solutions to fit almost any purpose and budget. Daniel’s unique combination of skills and experience are adding another powerful dimension to the comprehensive creative solutions we offer our clients at symbologie.
Daniel studied architecture at the Technical University Darmstadt in Germany and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich. Focused on non-linear geometries, his studies earned him an invitation to Columbia University’s GSAPP in New York. There he further developed his interest for complex 3D systems and received his Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design in 2006.
At Peter Marino Architect in NYC, he worked on a variety of projects for Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Loewe / Spain; plus Sotheby’s (high profile client rooms); the MGM Aria Citycenter, Las Vegas (high limits gaming areas and VIP accommodations); and luxury private residences. Through his work for PMA’s high end clientele Daniel developed an affinity for rich materials, subtle luxury, and employing the mechanisms of the art business to benefit clients by integrating artwork with proposed architecture.
For Hamiltons Architects in London, UK, his main work involved the 100 million £ TFL Hammersmith project. With his combined high end architecture and 3D scripting expertise, Daniel was hired to interface / translate between the mathematical creators of the unique parametric structure and the architectural construction specialists.
In 2008 Daniel founded Imagonauten, his Berlin based visual arts firm focused on 3D image projects with integrated architecture, design and art consulting services for an international clientele. Key clients include HOK London (Barwah Hospital, luxury beauty clinic / hotel / spa in Qatar); Collett-Zarzycky (Kenwood Place Apartment in Highgate, London); and ongoing collaborations with Danish architect and interior designer David Thulstrup on a range of flagship stores for luxury fashion brands in Beijing.
Daniel also continues to further his interest in beautiful photography. Since 2006 has had several solo and group exhibitions of his photography in New York, Berlin and Heidelberg, and has won the “Open House NYC” photo challenge in the category “Portrait”. Fluent in German and English, Daniel also speaks a bit of Japanese. And if you’d like to discuss classical Greek or Roman architecture in ancient Greek or Latin, he can do that too.
