Pedestrian Movement Analysis in Tallinn City Centre

3D Lab has carried out several fieldwork sessions in the city centre of Tallinn. We have captured hundreds of pedestrian tracks that help us to build digital simulation tools for predictive urban analysis. How do we do it? - We observe ...

Synthetic Modelling of Pedestrian Movement

This research follows the argument that pedestrian traffic in the city can be successfully simulated with agent-based computational models if pedestrians’ movement patterns are appropriately ...

Providing spatial guidance for the development of human settlement

The Estonian government cabinet initiated the preparation of planning process in counties, which will identify the spatial trends and principles for each county. One of the purposes of preparing these county plans is to guide settlement ...

Involving the Customer in the Process of Designing Energy-efficient Buildings

An applied research study led by the Department of Architecture and Urban Design’s 3D Lab team to find a possible software solution and more productively involve customers in the process of designing energy-efficient buildings. The objective ...

SPATIAL AGGLOMERATES

This branch of 3D Lab’s research investigates spatial organisations often associated with unplanned settlements. Such spatial agglomerates are composed of several co-located but autonomous units (agents) that share common facilities and ...

COMPUTING CIRCULATION

This research investigates the possibility of modelling circulation in settlements using computational modelling and more specifically agent-based systems. It focuses on two different types of models that correspond to diametrically opposed ...

3D LAB PLATFORM

3D Lab has set an ambitious target to develop platform technologies and associated tools that enhance the creativity and productivity of architects and designers working with early building concepts. The team has set out to explore the ...
