We are Digital District, an ETC project team focused on Communicating Urban Design in 3D for the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our project’s mission is to prototype an immersive tool for city planners to test, visualize and communicate their ideas to the public. This tool will allow urban planners to enter a simulated Pittsburgh corridor, make changes and experience them from ground level. Our clients are the City of Pittsburgh Urban Planning Department and The Reimagining Cities Institute (RCI) located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and they approached us to explore how game technologies can enhance city planning. As part of a grant from the Heinz foundation, RCI will use our prototype to help their students visualize plans for the Baum corridor in Pittsburgh.
