    AIASF Design Tech Meetup: New 3D Virtual City Models for Urban Context

    Wednesday, July 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

    Site context has always been a major consideration in the design and approval of architecture projects. Until recently, large-scale 3D models of the urban context were generally available to only a few large design firms, and they were typically restricted to in-house use. Technology innovation has now made it possible for any designer to easily insert proposed projects into 3D virtual city models to provide urban context.

    How might this impact project design? How might this change the public approval process? Where are these models available and for which cities? What is the future vision for 3D virtual city models? Please join in this interactive presentation and discussion.



    Learning Objectives

    After the program, attendees will be able to:

      1. Access 3D virtual city models for their use in project design;
      2. Use these models to accelerate the public review process;
      3. Participate in the future development of similar models;
      4. Navigate the models to present and capture presentation images and videos.
