CGI has long been associated with the film industry, but is now also an ideal visualization tool for designers and architects creating the ultimate what if" design scenarios. Design Dreams highlights the work of designers and 3-D render artists around the globe who visualize utopian architectural and interior designs set in dreamlike and futuristic environments. This compilation book is curated by London-based designer Charlotte Taylor, whose Instagram account @maison_de_sable features many of her own collaborations with render artists as well as those of her contemporaries. It has become the most followed Instagram account of this genre. The featured designs elevate a high-end, modern aesthetic that blurs the line between reality and fantasy in a digital world, one in which building and budget constraints do not impede the imagination of the creators.
