UrbanSculpt VR

Enabling participatory Urban Design with Extended Reality


UrbanSculpt VR is a prototyping tool that enables urban designers to prototype and test their solutions in extended reality.

Urban design interventions are expensive and time-consuming to implement, integrating user feedback in the design process is difficult. However, the design of cities has a huge impact on the lives of residents. It is important to design around their needs.

UrbanSculpt VR allows urban designers to create simulations of cities in extended reality. Residents of a city can navigate the simulation, allowing for the integration of user feedback in the design process.

The tool can be used for research and development. It allows for participants to leave their feedback as tags within the simulation. This feedback is compiled into a visualisation that is visible in virtual reality.

UrbanSculpt VR could be an important tool for policy making, and allows for the community to have a voice in the design of cities.
