Plan Abu Dhabi 2030 from squintopera on Vimeo.
The Urban Planning Council of Abu Dhabi (UPC) appointed Squint Opera to create a short film illustrating their grand Urban Planning Guide for Abu Dhabi. It was a good choice and Squint Opera's distinct style shines throughout the movie.
The film communicates the principles and visualises the UPC plans for the expansion of the city to attract investors, developers and architects. The UPC commissioned this film as an awe-inspiring vision demonstrating the scale, ambition and radical nature of the plan.
Describing the plan in 3D, brings to life certain aspects of the unique environment and a future evolving culture. Through 4 main key themes (Green – Live – Work – Connect) we are shown pedestrians walking the shaded sidewalks, using the world-class metro system and trams surrounded by green, energy saving residential townhouses, villas, high rises, offices and retail developments. The imagery shows desert landscaping, renewable energy measures and water-cooling canals in the streets of Abu Dhabi and demonstrates a efficient quality of life for the future population.
Abu Dhabi has been on our radar recently and its nice to see such a well crafted short film...
