In your words

“We’re bringing in architects and our clients and different consultants in one room and we’re viewing the drawing, the architecture and the massing through VU.CITY.”
Charlotte Orrell
Senior Planner at Iceni Projects
"The practice is taking full advantage of the VU.CITY model platform to great effect. As a design tool VU.CITY is exceptional, the extent to which we can now substantiate our architectural proposals with supporting data and compelling verified visuals is a game changer. The team are going beyond the clear benefits the software provides to test both urban and townscape strategies on major projects to explore environmental and microclimate impacts.”

“Architecture is essentially a 3D discipline, so VU.CITY is effectively showing what is already in an architect’s head in a way that hasn’t been possible before. The platform enables you to immediately understand the cityscape, the context, constraints, daylight, sunlight and the view angles, not just as it is today, but how it will be in the future. That’s incredibly valuable.”

"Development and architecture are embracing technology at a rapid rate but many ideas are impractical or premature and don’t work. The VU.CITY platform is already making an essential difference to design and planning decisions in London and clearly will go much further."

"The students were greatly helped by exploring their conceptual designs in their urban context by using VU.CITY’s accurate and immersive city model of London. It gives them greater understanding of their chosen sites and enhances their ability to portray their architectural ideas visually."

“VU.CITY is a valuable tool used in the development of our Local Plan at a time of unprecedented growth. It has brought a level of transparency that has helped us understand the impact of development on the character of our areas. This in turn is allowing us to create policies and develop aspirations for sites that are robust and tested, and is helping us to meaningfully engage with our communities.”
