  4. 4. Our Master Planning Projects 1. Regional & Environmental Study 2. Background Study / Existing Conditions Survey 3. Analysis and Forecasting 4. Planning Alternatives and Options 5. Final Master Plan • Traditional workflows do work but are becoming cumbersome. 4
  5. 5. Workflows • Two types of workflow Process workflows are Iterative Evaluations – Main project workflow – Process workflows • Finish one phase so the outputs can be used in the next phase • Smooth flow of data is critical 5
  6. 6. The problem: • • • • • Increasing complexity Increasing amount of data to analyse Chaotic nature of projects Communication Small office (5 staff) Speeding up the city master planning process with CityEngine
  7. 7. The Problem 100% % 0% Passage of time Projected Project Deadline What we actually need to do the job What the client gives us The Deadline Data Received Enthusiasm for project Interesting Times -100% Master Planning Cities (with the help of CityEngine)
  8. 8. A Solution to Part of the Problem? Improving & speeding up of the small but time consuming iterative processes
  9. 9. “CityEngine has been transformational for our business” 4 days in SketchUp? ½ a day in CityEngine? Speeding up the city master planning process with CityEngine
  10. 10. Our use of CityEngine • Early use was trying to replicate what we would have done in SketchUp • Integrating a new workflow can’t always been done over night • We’re starting to see the payback • Moving beyond visualisations 10

  15. 15. “In an ideal case, a planner or designer receives realtime guidance on performance at every phase of design from early site visit or conceptual sketch to final detail.” Michael Flaxman, 2009
  16. 16. I can build multiple planning scenarios in less than a day
  17. 17. Clients can see our visualisation work easily & dynamically
  18. 18. I can model urban & data models together
  19. 19. I can easily model the theoretical
  20. 20. I can model the natural
  21. 21. or the fantastical
  22. 22. or the historic
  23. 23. the very small
  24. 24. or the very large
  25. 25. we still give the client what they want
