Joe Cianciotto Speaks on How Technology is Making the Architectural World More Modernized and Matured


Technology has transformed nearly everything around the way that humans in the 21st century lead their life. This applies to the world of architecture as well -as technology has taken the driving seat in the way of designing and structuring a building. From beginning to finish, architects these days leverage technological innovations and applications to design buildings making them life-like as visualized by clients. While talking to the press people, Joe Cianciotto who is passionate about architecture, explains how technology is making it easier and achievable for architects to render different building designs more seamlessly.

3D Printing Mechanisms

Unlike the traditional way, the great evolvements of 3D printing have made it possible to apply it to structures on considerably a larger scale. 3D printers are used to generate images of complex building structures, layouts of large-scale construction to even complex structures of modern bridges. Thankfully, compared to 2D technology, 3D printing is rather fast, and cost-effective and can be deployed to generate a highly complex structure of residential or commercial complexes, skyscraper buildings, shopping malls, and others.

Modernized Sketchbooks

Gone are the days when architectural sketchbooks were found too bulky and graphite-covered which could easily consume a considerable amount of space on shelves. The new generation sketchbooks are digital, while all their drawings can be saved, displayed, and retrieved without touching the graphite sketching pencils. Being digital, it has made it easier and more persuasive to clients - any design sketch, and it has simplified the practices of architects to share their new ideas with clients or link-minded co-workers.

Climate Change Predictive Software

Climate change impacts the environment of different locales where buildings are constructed and affect the living style of homeowners there. The cutting-edge software has already been in use – allowing architects to envisage the way of differences in the climate of any area and how it’s going to affect a building beforehand it is made.

Accordingly, the software now enables architects to develop more durable, flexible, and adaptable structures of houses. According to Joe Cianciotto, adopting this specialized software applications can help architects to create buildings that will last for longer and function much better over the decades down the line.

VR Makes Models More Lifelike Than Ever

Even a few decades back, potential homeowners who worked with architects were dependent largely on 2D and later on 3D models to assess the product before they were constructed. Although these technologies have contributed a lot, however, they had certain limitations. 3D or 2D models often leave home buyers wondering about the finished look of their homes, interior design, or product.

With the emergence of VR (Virtual Reality) now, new generation home buyers can just not visualize their proposed home together with its surroundings but also envisage every nook and cranny of lifelike 3D images. By presenting the design with the use of a VR headset, now architects amaze their clients as they can easily walk around through the design of the entire building and explore its entryway, open closets, walk-down hallways, swimming pool, and more.
