VUCITY launches at MIPIM 2016 in Cannes
MIPIM 2016 takes place over 4 days and showcases the latest innovations in property with a real estate exhibition, conference and networking event gathering. It offers the perfect platform upon which to launch VUCITY, the first fully interactive 3D digital city model. VUCITY is a groundbreaking tool with which planners can understand the restrictions they face for their proposed developments. It seamlessly combines current, proposed and consented developments to display a London of the future. In addition to this, real-time Transport for London camera feeds have been embedded in the model, making the model sophisticated and connected to the city in a way no other model has ever been. Other features of the model include overlay of London sight-lines, sunlight paths and also transport links in order to help planners understand the proposals in relation to their surroundings. The model currently stretches from Earls Court all the way to ExCel, continuing up to Old Street and then the final stretch down to Battersea.
Vertex Modelling and GIA travelled down to Cannes, on the French Riviera, and set up the display in the Innovation Forum. The Innovation Forum is a pavillion next to Palais des Festivals which gathers all innovation stakeholders to showcase the most innovative solutions and practices to increase the value of property assets. In addition to the displays in the exhibition hall, there are also a variety of conferences taking place in the MIPIM Innovation Forum and its extension, including: case studies, pitching sessions at the Vitra lounge or private talks with famous architects and startups. VUCITY is being displayed at Stand C21.E3 for the duration of MIPIM 2016.
The first two days have got off to a good start with many people coming to view VUCITY using our giant tablets. What people seem to find particularly impressive is the ability to view the sight-lines from ground level and the ability to view London’s skyscraper cluster with the addition of the consented and proposed developments.
