Much like 100 years ago, the first part of the 21st century is shaping up to be an extremely exciting one. Marked by extreme social upheaval and a budding entertainment industry, the first half of the 20th century proved itself to be memorable, to say the least. Today, those of us in the architecture industry have something similar to look forward to. In 2020 there will be one place, and one place only, to experience the full extent of what there is to look forward to – Dubai Expo 2020.
What makes this project even more exciting, other than the fact that it might just become the tallest building on Earth, is the fact that construction is set to be completed in 2020, just in time for Expo 2020. The sheer magnitude of the project alone is enough to guarantee it will be in the spotlight of everyone’s attention, not to mention its undeniable beauty. However, having such a project to look up to is sure to produce some amazing results in the years to come. And we just can’t wait. Not only will the competition produce some of the most innovative designs, it will also have to produce some of the most innovative, and cutting-edge, solutions for portraying those designs in a manner that will truly show off all the qualities they bring to the table. Architectural visualization is surely going to benefit as much from these projects as they are from it.
As far as Case3D is concerned, one of the things we’re most excited about is seeing our friends and partners at Nshama at the expo. They’ve created something truly unique and never seen before in Dubai’s landscape – an affordable living space. In a city that’s all about luxury it means something to create a whole district that’s aimed at those that are needed to support all that luxury. It is our honest opinion that their efforts will not go unnoticed, and that more projects like theirs are going to emerge in the years to come. Of course, we would be remise not to mention the fact that they chose VR as their primary medium of promotion, which makes the project that much more exciting. Can we expect more projects to follow their example, and those of others? We sure hope so.
