Future of Cities and Construction: Virtual Singapore
February 10, 2017
An amazing effort focused on the future of construction and cities is the Virtual Singapore project, set to complete in 2017.
In an effort to focus on the future of construction and the future of the cities, one of the more interesting proposals is the Virtual Singapore project that is set to be completed in 2017.
By 2050 most of the world’s population will live in cities, with the total population to reach 9.7 billion.1
Even though cities are proven to promote more ecological living practices, there is continuous evidence that continued emissions of greenhouse gasses will contribute to serious climate effects, and it is important to understand how to constrain them. It is a challenge to be able to map the effects of urbanization unless we look at holistic data from a variety of resources.
Singapore and its National Research Foundation together with Dassault Systemes has created an elaborate $73Million 3D planning tool to simulate the future.
As a platform used by many different types of sectors, the users can run realistic simulations of the future of Singapore. By using advanced information modeling techniques, the users can visualize telephone data and information, pedestrian and transport movement platforms. This data system will be more than a virtual map, facilitating real time information and development of the city.
Singapore is one of the most technologically advanced cities today on the planet, and by utilizing the 3D Experience platform it addresses all aspects of architecture, infrastructure and planning through simulation.
