We have a new columnist on V1 Magazine today. Jeff Winston is the principal of Winston Associates, a Boulder, Colorado-based urban planning, landscape design and visualization company. Winston and his firm have tackled whole-city visualization projects for a number of different municipalities, and he will be sharing his knowledge in a series of columns throughout the year.
“Our experience has been that when the review bodies don’t understand a proposal they tend to a) drag their feet, b) make worst-case assumptions, and/or c) deny the project prematurely. On the other hand, WITH 3D visualization we have found that: a) the review time is noticeably shorter, b) the debate is more informed and focused around truly salient issues, and c) even if there is a denial, it usually is accompanied by clearer direction about what needs to be changed to meet approval. In short, we have not yet seen a review that was made longer or more complicated by 3D visualization, generally just the opposite.”
