FUTURE OF TRANSPORT The future of Singapore’s transportation landscape is exciting, there will be driverless taxis that take you everywhere you wanted while you could work on the way, goods that shipped via underground tunnel to your doorstep, and even robotic machineries that clean up the city. Client: Ministry of Transport Website: mot.gov.sg Services: Project Management, Architectural Visualization Agency: Digital Mirage Brief A vision is set for the Singapore’s future. This is a project initiated by the Futures Division under the Ministry of Transport Singapore. The brief is to illustrate a multi-layers sectional perspective to showcase how everything flows in the future landscape. Physical space continues to post as the greatest challenge for the fast-growing country, hence the verticle development in Singapore is seen everywhere, and in future, it is expanding below ground. Many services will be automated and streamlined, the ground surface will be car-light or car-less, while the busy traffic will be happening below ground, together with service tunnel and public train. The studies were done by the famous urban planning agency ARUP, and ideas were put into place by several government agencies. I was tasked to manage the project with MOT, and also our own artists, this masterpiece took 5 artists over 2 weeks of production time. 3d Artists : Yuri & Kyle Post Artists : Henry, Casper & Shermene Media release : Channel News Asia Process From sketches to 3d rendering to post production. To kickstart this visualization, I’ve taken the information from various parties, made some research and churn out some sketches. From there we further developed the structure and details before going into the 3d production stage. As this is a 15k px (in width) visualization, the 3d process is tedious as there were a lot of details and calculation involved, we often have to separate the file and ignore unnecessary calculation of light. As for the photoshop artists, they have to spread the image into layers to place in the foliage, people, activities and finally combine them together and apply an Artify effect to soften the image. Result With all the hardship and efforts contributed by our internal team and also the collaboration with various agencies, it is beyond words to describe the satisfaction of seeing this piece coming together and being announced to the nation.
