Rendering VS Reality: SM Seaside City Cebu

A rendering is a perspective drawing showing how a structure would look like once finished. Usually made available to the public during or even before construction, renderings are important because they basically present some essential information about the product and therefore ‘sell’ it even before it exists physically.

Although most completed structures look exactly like their original rendering, a few can look slightly (some even completely) different – visually and structurally – due to various reasons.

Here are 10 renderings of Cebu’s biggest mall — SM Seaside City Cebu. Did the completed structure match these renderings? Check out the photos below.
