Malaysia Company Transforms Ideas into Iconic Architecture With Autodesk Software

In architecture, the facade is often considered the most important part of a building, setting the first impression of a structure. In addition to the Al-Bidda Tower, PMB Facade created a floating “sky park” perched atop three 200-meter-tall hotel towers at the luxurious Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore.

The ability to digitally simulate and predict real-world performance before construction has provided PMB Facade with some important competitive advantages.
