“With the reliance of 3D models in architecture, 3D printing inserted itself into the field almost instantly, attracting architects and professionals already using traditional methods to produce tangible models for displaying urban and geographic buildings and areas.
With the ease and expanded creativity and results afforded by 3D design, architects are able to build entire landscapes and urban geographies which can also be changed or transformed from existing designs efficiently and without recreating the wheel.
Use of 3D printed models is currently an excellent way to educate people on geography as they are able not only to check out amazing technology but also to make use of a comprehensive visual tool that allows for viewers to, literally, have their city or neighborhood in the palms of their hands — now there’s a way to get in ‘touch’ with your surroundings.
Based in the Philippines, architects at WTA Architecture and Design Studio in Manila have recently produced an exhibit just so people can get a true sense of how the city has evolved. In a way that allows the exhibitgoers to physically touch Manila and its communities in 3D, and have their own unique opinions, emotions, and ideas regarding the city, they also explore the many and unique communities that have sprouted up in sprawling Manila.
With an extremely dense population, Manila boasts the second largest population in the Philippines. Situated on Manila Bay, the capital city is home to roughly 12 million people in the greater metro area, attributing to the massive growth and creation of so many different communities now depicted in ‘Fragments,’ the vibrant 3D printed architectural exhibit presented by WTA Studio.”
