Typically, the renderings for a new building portray the structure on a sunny day so it is seen in its best light, but this is not so for these rainy tower renderings.
Architects Richard Keep and Henry Goss were recently granted planning permission in Nairobi, Kenya for a tower to be called 'The Boundary.' The 30-storey mixed-use structure will include shops on the basement and ground levels, penthouse apartments on the upper floors and a restaurant, bar and terrace on the podium level. According to Jessica Mairs of Dezeen "The pair wanted to avoid the 'utopian' vision that architectural visualisation artists often strive for."
Portraying the building in this light is an interesting move and almost makes the building itself more compelling. Those who view the renderings will instantly know this building is removed from the norm, adding value to the property.
