Many people experience problems visualising newly presented plans for a building, residential area, or district. Residents wonder what the implications of the new plan will be. Will their view be affected? Will there be noise pollution?
Future inhabitants have other interests. For example, they want to know how the atmosphere in the neighbourhood will be, or whether there will be enough parking space.
Plan drawings, artist's impressions and animations provide a view with very limited possibilities for an individual agenda. The Virtual Scale Model presents itself as a friendly and flexible instrument where everyone can choose their own point of view. By bridging the differences in imaginative power between municipal representatives, project leaders, residents and new inhabitants, the plans will be comprehensive for all involved.
The Virtual Scale Model offers the possibility to all those involved to actively contribute to the realisation of a project. For example, there is an opportunity to ask virtual visitors their opinion or let them make suggestions about the project in an interactive way.
Practical experience has proven that the Virtual Scale Model accelerates decision making. People are naturally against changes in their habitat, until they are convinced of their advantages. The Virtual Scale Model offers a spatial view of these advantages in an informal way, contributing to the creation of the desired support for the project.
