UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW
We have been visiting Glasgow for the last few years to introduce CityCAD to development and urban design students.
BROOKES UNIVERSITY, OXFORD
Students at Brookes University have been using CityCAD to explore urban design options for sites in Birmingham and Oxford. This step-by-step video shows how CityCAD can be used.
British University in Dubai
CityCAD was used alongside other technologies to undertake liveability and activity analysis of a new urban settlement in Dubai.
The report by Nada El-Bana and Samy Eselim was presented at the 2015 Sustainable Development and Planning VII conference.
University of Glasgow
CityCAD was used again in 2018 by postgraduate students to prepare a development proposal for a large site at India Street in the centre of Glasgow, Scotland.
CityCAD allowed urban design questions of scale, massing and site organization to be explored at the same time as planning and financial viability.
This scheme by Conor Watt included public spaces at the north and south ends of the site.
This scheme by Raffael Hauck proposes a mixed-use building in the centre of the block with coworking spaces and serviced apartments.
