Rapid Prototyping In 3D

RAPID will use rapid prototyping in 3D (RAPID) to facilitate citizen co-creation activities and support the city decision making processes around changes and interventions to the built environment in response to COVID-19 restrictions such as social distancing. RAPID will use a library of 3D city assets with associated rules to allow investigation of different options and will include the ability to view citizen behaviours through the use of agents. Whilst the focus of RAPID is the response to the current COVID-19 crisis it will have value beyond as cities explore new urban designs in response to changing behaviours.
