Fractal Cities

An experimental visual feast of architectural design.


Haotian Zhang’s 3D experimental animation is a stunning visual feast that transports the viewer into the heart of Hong Kong’s residential landscapes. The film, which runs for 3 minutes and is devoid of any dialogue, uses cutting-edge design and animation techniques to bring the contorting architecture of Hong Kong’s mid and high-rise accommodation to life.

The film has an eerie dystopian vibe to it, with the buildings appearing as if they are living breathing organisms. Yet, there is beauty to behold in the way the towering structures twist and turn, creating an almost poetic dance that is both haunting and mesmerizing.

The animation is expertly crafted and highly imaginative, showcasing the creative vision of both Haotian Zhang and Chris Shing Chun Iu. The attention to detail is impressive, with every nook and cranny of the ever-evolving urban landscape rendered in vivid detail.

It is worth noting that the film is highly experimental and not necessarily for everyone, but those with an interest in architecture and design will appreciate the sheer artistry on display. Overall, Haotian Zhang’s 3D experimental animation is a triumph of creative expression and a must-watch for fans of cutting-edge animation.
