Described as “SimCity for real cities” as well as “Minecraft for architects”, Cityzenith has developed a platform which allows users to incorporate all aspects of digital architecture in one place.
Prior to Cityzenith’s creation of its award-winning Smart World software platform, architects struggled trying to use multiple pieces of software, which were often incompatible with each other, or difficult to use.
Perceiving this difficulty, Cityzenith spotted the gap in the market, and with the help from Google Earth creators, their award-winning Smart World platform was born.
Smart World is designed to eliminate the need for multiple pieces of software, as well as to make designing as simple as possible.
It is built to enable users to navigate their way to, import, consolidate, analyse, and report any information from almost any tool, anywhere in the world.
Users simply drag and drop their 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) project models into Cityzenith’s content-rich 3D city model environments right in their own web browsers. They can then find any data, run any analysis, and collaborate with any team members anywhere in the world in real-time.
Cityzenith’s 6-month Beta Program attracted many of the largest AEC firms in the world, many of whom are now becoming customers—Aecom (94,000), WSP-Parsons Brinckerhoff (34,000), SOM (2,000), HOK (4,000), Gensler (5,000), Surbana Jurong (5,000), and W.S. Atkins (18,000) to name several.
The software boasts the ability of covering 100 cities in 12 countries around the world, from Chicago to Doha, London to Mumbai.
Cityzenith’s city models are used by both commercial and government entities globally, and are connected to hundreds of open data and premium paid commercial services, which are curated via public and private APIs.
