Urban areas are growing both in size and complexity. Simultaneously, data is being captured today at growing rates. Sensors are being embedded in all around: in cars, appliances, roads, pipelines, etc. Smart systems are transforming energy grids, supply chains and water management systems. As our world is becoming interconnected, it is becoming increasingly relevant to explore ways in which such data streams can be visualized and become tools for planners, architects, designers, city officials, city inhabitants and other decision makers in creating new strategies for urban design. By having real-time data visualization tools we can make better more informed decisions.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle. It covers geometry, spatial relationships, light analysis, geographic information, quantities and properties of building components (for example manufacturers’ details).
Climate Symbiosis focuses on the latest available technology and applies it to improve the built environment.
It is necessary to monitor the building or city data in order to study its performance and turn it into a more efficient one. For this reason, CS trusts in smart buildings and smart cities, as they use technology to optimize time and energy.
There are plenty of possible applications of this technology to the building or to the urban environment, from light and thermal control, shading or other automated equipment in buildings to smart transportation in cities. The application of this tool is essential for an optimal use of the building or of the built environment.
