Using procedural modeling to visualize historic Cityscapes.
Track: Communicating with 3D
Authors: Justin Madron
CityEngine enabled us to create an immersive, engaging 3D model of the built environment of 1850s Richmond that shows the spatial footprint of the slave trade. By allowing us to create procedural rules true to the style of mid-19th-century urban architecture, CityEngine helped us model thousands of buildings about which we possessed minimal evidence. This presentation will interest people who want to use procedural modeling to create cityscapes—of the past, the present, and the possible future.
