In the context of architectural photography and visualizations, a bird’s-eye view is a perspective that shows a building or area from above, as if you were looking down on it from the sky.
This type of view is often used to showcase the layout and design of a building or area, and can be particularly effective for showing the relationship of the building or area to its surroundings. Bird’s-eye views are often used in marketing materials for real estate properties, as well as in architectural renderings and other visualizations.
These views can be created using a variety of techniques, including aerial photography, drone photography, or computer-generated imagery (CGI).
In comparison with the urban fabric surrounding the hotel, the form of the building stands out for its dynamism and fluidity. The effect of the façade can be seen in the surrounding model, where the building completes the block and offers a new urban facade to the square.
The urban design of this square in front of the promenade is like a pattern of circles of different sizes. The skylights, lampposts, gardens and fountains are linked together like a constellation. The wood and aluminium model also shows the entrances to the underground car park beneath the square.
