Future Cities in the making – overcoming barriers to information modelling in socially responsible cities

What questions are City Information Modelling (CIM) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) best suited to answer? This project examines what digital information is commonly available in UK cities and what new information can be retrieved from the built environment through BIM to aid planning. It...

The Edge: a case study and template for BIM

This project developed a case study of The Edge in Amsterdam, billed as the world’s smartest building, for CDBB. This was not only for the sake of sharing this specific case, but also to use it as a template to build the “standard case study template.” When we consider other buildings, we can...

The local governance of digital technology – implications for the cityscale digital twin

What part does city and regional governance play in how a city-level digital twin develops? It is necessary to understand the ways in which governance for digital twins is bound by context and the ways in which it is generalisable in order to successfully transfer knowledge and best practices among...
