17.30 MAPPLE demo session

Mapple’s urban intelligence software helps city planners use data to better understand the area they are planning to develop, predict the impact of their developments and make sure they change the lives of the residents for the better. At this demo session, you will be able to see and try out the solution.

18.00 “Under Construction: 25 Questions for Cities” – session facilitated by Arup Group and The Alexandra Institute

Join Arup and The Alexandra Institute by the installation "Under Construction: 25 Questions for Cities".

Here, new approaches to community engagement will be discussed and the challenges of aligning diverse views when making decisions about the future of our cities. Arup and The Alexandra Institute will describe the background of the installation and share expertise relating to a few of the questions to help start a public debate. Attendees will have the chance to contribute with viewpoints and knowledge in an effort to collectively agree on the best approach. At the end of the session, we welcome ideas for future topics, iterations, and applications.

18.30 A “digital twin” demo session facilitated by the Alexandra Institute

Get hands on experience with Digital Twin concepts at the Living Bench made by the Alexandra Institute. The Bench is an urban installation that is placed in several cities throughout Denmark. Here, it tells local and relevant stories or create soundscapes, when people sit on it. To accompany the Bench, The Institute have made a mobile application that exemplifies concepts of the Digital Twin, e.g. being able to see data in context (live and historic), inspect the underlying construction model to assess “as designed” vs. “as build”, and interact with the physical bench through the digital counterpart. The installation gives an idea about how digital twins could play an important role in urban installations in the future.
