Title: MODELS OF THE GLIWICE CITY STRUCTURE. New Gliwice and Akademicka district. Public space, mockup, 3D, augmented and virtual reality models.


The models of the Gliwice city structure are the result of a semester work carried out in an international team of female students and teachers. Classes were conducted in the PBL (project based learning) formula, i.e. teaching through the implementation of a joint venture. The originator of the series of classes, each edition of which ends with an exhibition, public presentation and publication, is Dr. Eng. arch. Tomasz Bradecki. The publication was created thanks to the cooperation with the city of Gliwice and the Silesian University of Technology and the support of partners: GAPR, iDreams, GZM, and EMT-Systems. The work contains a number of analyzes of the structure of the city of Gliwice, among others analysis of the structure of road and public transport, analysis according to the Kevin Lynch method or analysis of the share of built-up area. Some of the analyzes were carried out with the use of proprietary spatial models. Particular attention was paid to the areas of New Gliwice and the Academic District, which can be considered developmental and strategic for the city due to their role and potential. The selected analyzes were mapped in the form of physical mockups. They were made with the Styrocad Machine belonging to the Faculty of Architecture. The publication uses, inter alia, GIS software, 3D modeling tools, drone photography and 360 degree panoramic photography application. Applications were also used that allow the models to be experienced in augmented and virtual reality. Mapping urban spaces and the data that describe them with the help of models should be considered useful in the didactic process and for the presentation of large areas. The publication contains references to models that can play an informative role in spatial orientation in larger urban areas.
