3D Visual Simulation Videos
UCLA Capital Programs currently manages a real-time 3D virtual model of the UCLA Campus for the
purposes of design feasibility study, campus planning, presentation, and cataloging both
historical and existing campus conditions. Other campus departments also utilize the resource
for the purposes of marketing and fundraising.
Rendered in real-time using a proprietary software developed at UCLA by the former Urban Simulation Team at UCLA, Captial Program’s ever-evolving 3D campus model allows architects, campus planners, community members, and donors to “locate” or “place” themselves within a digitally accurate and realistic 3D perspective representation of a proposed development with the existing surrounding campus as context. Using this communicative and collaborative visual database allows all to become active and informed participants in the evaluative process which fosters better and smarter development well-suited for the preservation and evolution of the UCLA campus.
