Produktbeschreibung
While there is a rich array of urban theory, design, and representation books available, there is currently no book which brings together, in a single volume, urban design theory and new digital technologies in urban information mapping, modeling, and 3D simulation. Based on two decades of practicing and teaching architecture, author Brian McGrath's Digital Modelling for Urban Design explores the new theories and technologies of digital modelling, focusing on how to create moving and interactive 3D drawing, skills useful in the context of urban theory, and design and representation. Fully illustrated with original maps, 3D models, and drawings and photographs, this innovative work introduces digital modelling to students, architects, designers, and planners interested in the processes key to shaping the urban environment.
Digital Modelling for Urban Design Brian McGrath A highly topical text book that introduces the powerful technique of digital modelling to a wide audience of students, architects, designers, planners and urban citizens - and anyone else involved in the complex decision-making processes involved in shaping the urban environment. Drawing on two decades of teaching and practising urban design, Brian McGrath explores new theories and technologies of digital modelling to create moving and interactive 3-d drawing situated within the histories of urban theory, design and representation. The book is both theoretical and practical. For the main examples - Rome, New York and Bangkok - McGrath draws on his own experience of living and working in these three cities on three different continents. Analytical discussions of the cities combine historical and abstract knowledge with the 'ground truth' of empirical experience. While a rich array of urban studies books have been published over the last thirty years, there is currently no single book like this that brings together urban design theory and new digital technologies in urban information mapping, modelling and 3-d simulation, as a way of understanding how cities transform and differentiate over time.

Autorenporträt
Brian McGrath is Associate Professor of Urban Design at Parsons, the New School for Design in New York. For many years, he also taught urban design at Columbia. He has taught internationally in Taiwan, Denmark, Hong Kong and Thailand, where he was a Fulbright Senior Scholar in 1998-99. He recently completed a research fellowship at the India China Institute at the New School. McGrath is co-author with Jean Gardner of Cinemetrics: Architectural Drawing Today (2007) and co-guest-editor of Sensing the 21st-Century City: Close-Up and Remote (2005), both published by John Wiley & Sons. 'Brian McGrath is that rare writer and teacher who can portray the complexity of the city without reducing it to simple stereotypes.' Grahame Shane, Adjunct Professor of Architecture, Columbia University. 'Brian McGrath is an urban inventor who has developed nuanced techniques to approach the impossible complexity of representing the city. This book shares those techniques while also transporting the reader deep into some of the world's most intricate urban fabric.' Keller Easterling, Associate Professor, Yale School of Architecture.
