"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."

Co-founder - Lipton Rogers
"VU.CITY is helping us analyse projects at an early stage and refine elements of our live projects faster and more accurately. Being able to quickly assess a site or stress test things like massing and planning context provides us with more clarity and objectivity that would previously have taken us a lot longer to achieve."
