Under the title “Big Data and smart urban models: from Building Information Modeling to sustainable urban planning” Alfredo Carrato, Architect and BIM Manager at AGi architects, along with Daniel Muñoz, EMBA, Architect and Managing Director at AGi architects, share their vision on Smart Cities and the key role played by data and information –supported by Big Data– to create a sustainable city growth.
An abstract is offered below and the full article in Spanish is also available on this link.
Today, urban areas have become complex, multidimensional entities inhabiting more than 50% of the world’s population (UN-Habitat WCR, 2016). At the same time, the development of cities presents a considerable increase in the role of data and information, so that the creation of bonds -supported by Big Data- between the building scale and urban models can provide administrations with a solid framework in which to plan the sustainable growth of the cities for the next decades. The collection of data, its conversion to useful information and the intelligent application of it through knowledge will enable future urban actions to be based on the most solid bases available to us.
