A product and system based approach for urban spaces eco-design
IET Conference Publications
This paper proposes to discuss about the process of urban space development. According to many experts, urban space description is always system-oriented and is never considered as a product. Actually, these experts produce 3D models but hardly use these models as references to discuss and exchange data during the design-project. This paper is focusing on digital mock-up (DMU) approach for proposing a new way of thinking the design process of urban space. Considering a given urban space both within a system-oriented context and a product-oriented context will enable applying approaches that have brought many success stories in the manufacturing domain. The approach proposed in this paper aims to enable considering constraints on the urban space (product approach) as well as the flows that enter and exit of the urban space (system approach). DMU is then used to share data between all the actors of the project.
