The following virtual reproduction are from various large-scale urban projects completed in Valencia, Bilbao and Barcelona (Spain) for several urban planning agencies. All of the 3D projects required various land uses: protection of farmland, urban space, industrial space, transportation hubs infrastructure and wilderness. Our 3D graphics show the efficient placement of infrastructure and zoning for the sustainable growth of each project. Nowadays, land use planners are increasingly making use of Information Technology, and Spatial Decision Support Systems to assist with analysis and decision-making. The 3d reproduction model was created using the terrain contour lines and high resolution orto-photo maps from the Spanish National Cartographic Institute.
This project shows the urban 3d reproduction of Barcelona's main square: Plaza Catalunya. The 3D public space visualization of all areas used freely on a day-to-day basis by the general public included the famous boulevards of "Las Ramblas" and "Passeig de Gracia". Other secondary streets, squares, parks and public infrastructure were also modelled to acomplish a more realistic appearance. The virtual reproduction was carried out over a period of 3 months. It included photographing all building facades and their surrounding environment for the final imagery/rendering.
This project shows a virtual flight over the Basque Country. To create the 3d reproduction, a giant ortophotograph mosaic at 1/5000 scale was mounted and then adjusted for topographic relief at 1:20,000 scale.
A virtual reproduction of the city of Bilbao was also created to increase realism while the camera started to descend. Various facade photographs were used to texturise the 3D city facade elevations.
The Guggenheim Museum, "Palacio de Euskalduna" and the "San Mamés Stadium" were modelled using great detail to display them as spectacular monuments from the river. This detail was extremely important as these buildings are symbols of a revitalisation effort for the city of Bilbao, and for the Basque Country.
These renderings show the 3d reproduction of different railway transport systems for several engineering companies and local development agencies in Spain.
One of our major projects consisted of the virtual reproduction of Barcelona’s Main Square (Plaza Cataluña) to show the future installation of a new tramway.
The second 3D animation we carried out was completed with the aim of showing the virtual reproduction of a future Subway Station in Barcelona. The modelling was done using CAD plans and the structure specifications report provided by engineers. Not only was the interior modelled, but also the majority of the installations at the station: escalators, light fixtures, corporate image, ticket machines, etc.
The third 3D project involved the creation of a 3D animation showing the future route of the Euskadi high speed train called "Y vasca", that will link the Capitals of the Basque Provinces (Bilbao, San Sebastian and Vitoria) with Madrid and Paris. The Central Government, through the Ministry of Development, is responsible for the construction of the rail infrastructure in Spain. In the case of Y Vasca, and thanks to an agreement reached with the Autonomous Region Administration, the Ministry of Development has granted part of this responsibility to the Basque Government. To complete the project they have allowed a 2.536 million Euro budget.
This virtual reproduction shows the rendering completed for the making of Jaume Plensa's Crown Fountain in Chicago's Millennium Park. The 3d reproduction of the fountain consists of two high towers that face each other across a 48-foot wide pool. 3D Water cascades flow from the sides of the towers while video footage of different faces are projected from behind the 3D glass blocks.
Jaume Plensa asked Pixeldreams to project videos of peoples faces pursing their lips on the towers. It was to make the people appear as gargoyles as a squirt of water spews forward.
