Born in Nsukka, Nigeria, Hassan Anifowose – more widely known by the nickname of Cortex is a young architect and CG visualization artist who, in 2007, set up Chronos Studeos.
Keen to encourage young architects and CG artists who harbour a similar talent and passion for the subject, Hassan regularly hires new young minds to join the constantly expanding Chronos Studeos team as they undertake projects for clients in Africa and beyond.
Before setting up Chronos Studeos, Hassan studied for five years to achieve a B.Tech in Architecture from the Federal University of Technology in Akure. He was the CAD Manager for Project & Design Associates in Akure, following which he was hired as the architect to oversee on-site delivery of schedules and design updates for the NSITF Towers renovations in Lagos. Hassan has also successfully completed a Master’s degree in Architecture at the University of Lagos.
A Graduate Member of the Nigerian Institute of Architects whose design, ‘SOHO Living for Urban Professionals’ made it to the 2nd stage of the World Architecture News (WAN) Awards in December 2012, Hassan also regularly contributes articles to the company website, www.chronos-studeos.com/blog, specialising in 3D visualization, 3D concepts, keyframing, lighting and animation tips.
Amongst the highlights in Hassan’s increasingly large portfolio of works are his Project Monrovia and Lekki Gardens animations, as well his 3D visualizations for OFON offshore living quarters, Omega Towers, Twin lakes project, the Nigerian Army armoured personnel carrier(APC), the NCDMB headquarters building and
many other private residences.
Away from architecture, Hassan has a red belt in Tae Kwon Do martial arts, as well as a keen observer of nature and the animal world. He also loves competing in role-playing computer games from which he earned the ‘Cortex’ nickname.
Hassan constantly looks forward to contributing his expertise on architecture and 3D visualization to the Architectural design & CG world. He can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
