New London Architecture (NLA) chairman Peter Murray has called for the next mayor of London to commission a digital model of the capital (Feedback, 11.03.16).
We were therefore keen to showcase VUCITY - our digital model of London - at Mipim and were delighted to receive an encouraging response from Peter.
With VUCITY, planners can toggle between existing and consented developments, offering a macro and detailed understanding of planned development, which will help us to understand the cumulative impact of tall buildings in context. We can overlay the London View Management Framework, transport links and sunlight paths, as well as embedding live data feeds.
While a 3D digital model may not be the whole solution, it can only help to inform the debate.
