Urban planning and design has to grapple with a plethora of complex issues, it is difficult to design cities holistically or to see a well-rounded view of how a decision impacts many aspects of a city.
By synthesizing diverse data inputs, performing multi-objective optimization at scale, and visualizing resulting urban master plan scenarios in real time.
Sidewalk Labs’s Generative Design tool has enormous potential for creating a holistic sustainable urban planning process. Technically, this project advances the state of the art in several key areas including:
Practically, Generative Design promotes sustainability by making urban planning: more holistic, more performance driven, more creative.
The biennale installation will emphasize those features—dynamic interaction and real-time visualization—that allow multiple citizen stakeholders to participate in the design of their cities through legible and accessible computation.
