Short for "architectural visualization." In the field of architecture, projects need to be sold to clients to get them funded and built; "arch vis" is the practice of making structures look nice and pretty, using a variety of methods from ink and watercolor to CAD software and computer rendering.
The hospital chose the building from X firm because their arch vis of their building proposal looked almost lifelike.
