A 3D city model can be used to compare different urban design strategies. They can be evaluated against measures such as land use, population and housing densities, building height, plot ratio and cost.
3D Visualisation improves Urban Design, Architecture and Urban Planning. The use of 3D visualisation to access the relationships of projects and assess their feasibility can only provide long term benefits for the community. A good example of this can be found in the redevelopment of Forrest Place.
"First we shape our cities, then they shape us"
That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.
Buildings, towns and cities are the most powerful and moving elements of our existence, as powerful as religion, music, art or politics. Yet cities are, and always have been, more than these: they are permanent, public and shared in both expression and achievement. Architecture and urbanism, I have no doubt, are our greatest achievements.
