Building Castles Out of Silicon

Leonel Sousa Pinto and Luis Miguel Taklim are the principals of Anyforms Design and Communication, a Portuguese company that is the country's first independent infographics agency. The company's core products are sports graphics and highly detailed 3D renderings of historic buildings and monuments in Portugal and Spain.

At first it seems like an odd pair of specialities, but their portfolio delivers similarly detailed portraits of Southern Europe's temples of sports and tourism. Sousa said that they faced constant challenges finding complete information and the right angles of view to recreate these structures -- both those that still stand and those that disappeared long ago.
