The Top 5 Sustainable Building Renderings of the Year: Renewable Energies and Innovation
In this post, we'll highlight the Top 5 Sustainable Building Renderings of the year. These have been chosen by a panel of experts in the field of building design and rendering. We'll showcase the most innovative, visually stunning, and impactful renderings, and explain what makes them stand out.
The world of building design and rendering is constantly evolving, with new technologies, software, and techniques always emerging. These renderings are chosen for their innovation, “greenness,” visual impact, and overall impact on the field of building design and rendering.
Ever since the beginning of time, humans have been working hard to make things better and further develop our society. Especially since the Industrial Revolution, the world has been competing to develop the newest ideas and make things more efficient.
In more recent decades, there has been a shift to ensure that we will still have a place on this earth years from now. With that idea in mind, there has been a new focus on being more “green” and more sustainable. This has then created a movement within architecture and building as well. Below, we will highlight some of the buildings that have put this idea into their main focus.
Top 5 Sustainable Building Renderings
"The Infinity Tower" by DNA Barcelona Architects | Hong Kong
This stunning skyscraper rendering is notable for its unique, DNA/ infinity-shaped design and for its use of a unique garden terrace system, which incorporates lush greenery into the building's design. Advanced parametric modeling techniques and a central axis, make this possible. The building's design is also highly energy-efficient, sustainable, and offers many “green ideas” incorporated into the design.
"The Urban Oasis" by UNStudio | Singapore
This rendering of a high-rise mixed-use building is notable for its variety of spaces. It houses not only office and commercial spaces, but residences, as well as two luxury hotels. The building's design also includes features such as sun and rain shelters, sky gardens, and other transformative ideas.
"The Wave" by Henning Larsen Architects | Denmark
This rendering of a mixed-use building is notable for its unique wave-shaped design, which is achieved through advanced computational design techniques. The building's design features an ever-changing landscape design. For example, by day, the structure is reflected as white waves in the water. And by night, this view changes to look like multi-colored mountains.
"The Shanghai Tower" by Gensler | China
This rendering of the Shanghai Tower building has been recognized for not only being the tallest building in China, it is also one of the “greenest”. Did you know that it is essentially 9 skyscrapers stacked on top of one another?! Its unique aerodynamic design helps to reduce wind load on the building. It also contains a system that utilizes rainwater and wastewater efficiently.
"The Line" by Neom | Saudi Arabia
Finally, one of the newest and largest conceptions on the market for a sustainable building. This rendering of a building design concept is essentially more of a "small city". It has plans to house thousands of residents, as well as anything you would need to work, live, and eat. Ever. The idea is to make it highly efficient for getting to and from places on foot. It also plans to run on 100% renewable energies essentially.
So why is all of this important?
This movement towards “green” buildings is one that is revolutionary. Every day, we are emitting more and more fossil fuels and are creating a larger carbon footprint. While architects and designers may not be physically planting trees or recycling their bottles, they have a unique position. Believe it or not, they can directly influence the future of our world. As found in the above designs, architects have the ability to highly influence our world’s future with how they design and build our future cities.
While designers may not be designing skyscrapers every day and these ideas may not be utilized in every single building, we can take components from them. It is so important to keep these factors in mind and to implement them into more and more designs. Whether that is making small rooftops gardens, inserting better rainwater systems, or using a few solar panels, anything helps.
In conclusion, the top 5 sustainable building renderings of the year showcase cutting-edge innovation and designs. From the Infinity Tower's uniquely shaped design to the Line Building's incorporation of an entire city, these renderings (and actual buildings) push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of architecture. We hope that this post has given you a taste of the exciting possibilities that exist in the field of building design and rendering.
