Visualising the future – Digital images of the City


Thursday 23 January 2020
08:30 - 09:30

The graphic representation of new developments has changed dramatically as technology has evolved. With tools such as virtual reality we are able to experience a place before breaking ground. 
These graphics provide a window into a potential future – it represents how we see the city evolving.

This breakfast talk brings together illustrators, producers and industry experts to discuss these new technologies and new graphic approaches to representing our changing city. How accurate are these depictions of a future reality? How much of what we visualise is shaped by practicalities and how much is idealism? How far do they actually influence the final physical place?
