Danse Macabre - Time lapse (by Benjamin Sack)

Benjamin Sack’s incredible cityscapes are drawn with extraordinarly complex detail and filled with myriads of miniature and sometimes recognizable buildings. In his most recent solo exhibition at Ghost Print Gallery, Sack’s works loosely corresponded to the four movements of Beethoven’s “Eroica” symphony. “The overarching theme of this ‘symphony,’ Sack says, “is the hero’s journey (viz the viewer’s) into drawings detailed, complex and rich in metaphor; a sort of modern, existentialist epic.”

Harris County voters will decide in a week what to do with the Astrodome. A ballot measure, known on mobile billboards and Twitter feeds as Proposition 2, asks taxpayers to foot a $217 million renovation, designed by Kirksey, that would convert the Dome into convention space. The rendering above shows what that might end up looking like: The stadium’s below-grade playing field would be raised; the rainbow seats removed; exterior scrubbed; entrances enlarged with glass panels; and the concrete perimeter made into greenspace.
If the measure fails, it’s likely that the Dome will be demolished.

Despite all the ways digital renderings may belie reality, they have become an extremely effective way to sell new buildings to a wide audience. More accessible for the non-architect, non-designer compared to diagrams or models, these slick images are often the public’s first exposure to a proposed project. Hundreds of visualizations flow through design sites like ArchDaily, Designboom, and Dezeen each week before getting picked up by more mainstream outlets.
