Coolest Thing This Morning: London 3D

Posted by: Matt Vella on January 24

Dr. Andrew Hudson-Smith, a professor at the University College London, is attempting to recreate the city of London using the hit PC game Crysis’ mod tools. The so-called Digital Urban project is mashing up Google Earth, Google SketchUp, and the stellar Crysis game engine to hopefully recreate the English capitol, in real-time 3D. (Video below.)

A few weeks ago, I wrote about mega-architectural firm HKS using Epic Games’ Unreal 3 engine to help it market its largest, most complex and expensive projects. Tools from the worlds of graphic design, special effects, and, yes, games are bleeding together to create fascinating new projects. This is one more example.
