Abstract

The University of the West of England, (UWE) modelled part of Bristol for a Virtual Reality (VR) experience to demonstrate millennium landmark proposals. UWE later modelled the environs of the Tower of London to support bids for funding and to provide the context for judging the visual impact of iterative design development. All structures, hard landscape and trees were modelled in 3D down to street furniture, railings and kerbs. Further research continued to develop more effective approaches to historic building maintenance management, visitor management and interpretation of historic sites to visitors. Piecing in new Computer Added Architecture Design, (CAAD) models received from Architectural Practices to visualise them in context as part of the planning nego
