Chapter

This article discusses how the use of complementary visualisation techniques can contribute to improve planning, understanding, and communication of future cities, especially when different stakeholders are involved. First, it describes a framework to structure visual representations. Second, it introduces the ‘ETH Value Lab’ as a tool for designing future cities. Third, it introduces two applications that can be used for two urban planning processes: planning and project management and visualising neighbourhoods. Finally, it shows scenarios for education and learning. This article is relevant for urban planners and visualisation researchers, because it points to the emerging field of visualising future cities and for professors, teachers, but also school administration and ICT-experts who want to invest and use state-of the art mixed reality infrastructures for teaching and research.
