Picture Plane is a digital imaging studio run by architects. The studio produces visualisations and animations that go beyond photorealistic representation to communicate the atmosphere and ethereal qualities of unbuilt spaces.

Picture Plane was established in 2008 by Jörg Majer and Maria Fulford. Collaborating with architects, artists, designers and engineers the studio constructs images through conversation and creates a strong narrative behind each piece of work.

A small team of talented visualisers, all with a background in architecture, work alongside Jörg and Maria to produce a diverse range of projects.
