Caustics causing trouble in London

Postby ingenious » Sun Apr 13, 2014 9:41 am

A bit old, but awesome -- a curved reflective building in London casting a caustic on a street, heating the area to up to 93 degrees Celsius :D

The Disney concert hall in Los Angeles causes similar problems for nearby buildings. Maybe to a lesser degree (hee hee).

All architectural designers seriously need to use a rendering algorithm that can properly handle caustics!

# In my office, caustics from a mirror like building on the other side are trying to burn my eyes during sunny days.
