BIM, Virtual Reality and Interoperability at District Level


The scientific objective of the research is to describe the socio-technical processes of urban transformation in the aftermath of the introduction of ICT tools for design. By interpreting and elaborating the tools, the potential application could be aimed at leading practical experimentations in drawing and testing maps of urban transformation capable of correlating physical actions with economic dynamics, impact evaluation on materials and public decision-making processes.
