How 3D has become an essential element to plan, analyse, and share land-based projects.
From Sketchup to BIM tools, it’s no longer possible to imagine a modern building project without 3D. But how are urban governments dealing with 3D? Once again, digital transformation is at work and 3D is turning out to be a hugely useful, even indispensable tool. In engineering terms, as well as from the perspective of involving citizens in projects, this new tool supports a collaborative approach to major urban schemes. It provides a common frame of reference for accessing all challenges that local governments must address in urban transformation projects, including connectivity, energy consumption, mobility, attractiveness, and sustainable development, and has become essential to contemporary urban design.
