Computer Generated Imagery Rendering (video)

The most detailed aspect of Walt Disney's 
E.P.C.O.T project was the urban center featuring what was called the "cosmopolitan hotel" as the centerpiece. As seen in the E.P.C.O.T film, an international shopping center and offices were supposed to be constructed below the "deck" of the hotel in an enclosed environment. Giant glass domes would have served as sources of light from the outside. For the 2001 documentary "Walt, the man behind the myth" from Jean-Pierre Isbouts for the Walt Disney Family Foundation, the urban center and the immediate green belt were recreated in computer generated imagery. In 1998, a 360° panorama was also created from the virtual point of view of the urban center. Both views are available below from our YouTube channel:
