Models and Movies …That’s What NEEZO Studios Has Been Up To Lately
A Model Makeover
NEEZO Studios, an architectural visualization firm & scale model maker recently acquired a building next door to their current office, expanding its footprint to 15,000 sq. ft., giving their headquarters a campus-like feel.
The new facility, conveniently located in Mississauga, will house scale model services and will provide ample space to further explore NEEZO’s state-of-the-art capabilities, running multiple projects of all sizes, at the same time.
NEEZO’s scale model services include massing, detailed and AR-enhanced with a variation of light sources, including interactive options. NEEZO also offers 3D printing, laser cutting, painting and hand assembly in the material of your choice.
NEEZO’s recent growth is all in an effort to allocate more floor space for their scale model division, as well as to increasingly serve the demand for their work.
It’s not unusual for their model makers to hop over to Manhattan to install a scale model in the morning, grab a bite in the Big Apple and head back to Toronto to install another scale model in downtown Toronto—all in a day’s work.
They’re excited to continue serving their North American clientele and look forward to further growing their business internationally.
NEEZO Studios’ other creative services include: photorealistic 3D renderings and animations, interactive applications, digital sales center software for new home builders to sell–virtually, software development, virtual reality, augmented reality, configurators, traditional and digital marketing, visualizers, virtual staging and VFX. Serving film/television, residential and commercial real estate, and retail industries.

Architect Todd Saunders’s buildings on Fogo Island, Newfoundland embrace the excitement of being on the edge of nature and contemporary design while fulfilling the goal of doing ‘new things with old ways.’

Mario Botta: The Space Beyond
2018 / 78 min / Switzerland
Directors: Loretta Dalpozzo, Michèle Volontè
This film is a rare, in-depth artistic journey into the work of internationally acclaimed Swiss architect Mario Botta. The film explores Botta’s ever-growing curiosity and reflections on the contradictions of society through his sacred spaces. Why does a globalized society feel the urge to build such spaces?
Passionate, tireless, at age 76, Botta is one of the few architects who has built places of prayer for the three main monotheistic religions. After building many churches, chapels and a synagogue, he is now working on a mosque in China. Through his reflections and his interactions with artists, colleagues, clients and family members, the viewers have a glimpse of the man behind the architect.
Special introduction by Architect Mario Botta with Christine Abbate
After the film, a Q&A with the director, Loretta Dalpozzo

SuperDesign: Italian Radical Design 1965-75
2017 / 62 min / Italy
Director: Francesca Molteni
SuperDesign is a film about the Italian Radical Movement in Architecture & Design in the 1960s and ’70s. Through the words and stories of people who were part of that movement, we retrace the history and the heritage of the movement. They take us back to that time when everything seemed possible.
The mid-1960s represented a revolutionary time when the need for change has spread everywhere in the Western world and has pervaded all the aspects of life. Some beautiful archival historical images recreate the atmosphere of the period — a time of positive turbulence on an artistic level.
In the film we encounter an amazing collection of architects and designers from this fertile period: Emilio Ambasz, Franco Audrito, Dario Bartolini, Lapo Binazzi, Andrea Branzi, Germano Celant, Gilberto Coretti, Pietro Derossi, Piero Gilardi, Ugo La Pietra, Roberta Meloni, Alessandro Mendini, Adolfo Natalini, Gaetano Pesce, Gianni Pettena, Franco Raggi, Charlie Stendig, Cristiano Toraldo di Francia and Jim Walrod.
Special introduction with the gallerist Evan Snyderman

Charlotte Perriand, Pioneer in the Art of Living
2019 / 52 min / France
Director: Stéphane Ghez
The designer and architect Charlotte Perriand was a highly creative figure who left her mark on the 20th century. Free-spirited and politically engaged, she designed revolutionary furnishings and participated in the invention of modern dwellings that were in harmony with both their inhabitants and their environment.
From her avant-garde battles alongside Le Corbusier in the 1930s to her experience in Japan, and affirmation of a lifestyle based on openness and flexibility, this film, in the shape of a notebook of memories gives us an up-close and personal look at a life filled with passion and creativity. It also opens us to reflections about contemporary society, as seen through the eyes of an exceptional figure.
After the film, a Q&A with the director, Stéphane Ghez
