3D Modelling & Game Environments
International Research Projects
The Interdisciplinary Centre for Spatial Simulation and Modelling [German: Arbeitsbereich Räumliche Simulation und Modellbildung] deals with latest computer-aided technologies for the built environment. Core of the centre is the Spatial Simulation Lab [SimLab] with its 3D virtual reality (VR) environment. SimLab aims at the illustration of urban visions.
Dealing with the subject city by covering future, present and past aspects issues the programmatic approach. Equipped therewith the urban space of tomorrow is to be tackled experimentally and the spatial impact of concrete projects can be clearly visualized. Simulation-assisted experimenting with urban space is to be regarded as an essential contribution to the configuration of our living environment. The main focus is the smart city.
SimLab is part o the Department of Spatial Planning, Faculty of Architecure and Planning at Vienna University of Technology.
