BIMCommunity hosted a roundtable discussion to highlight the changes that the pandemic has brought in the cities and the shift in mindset it has made way for. Mark Saunders from Ferrovialm Services, Dr. Richard J. Vestner and Eduardo Lazzarotto from Bentley Systems weighed in on the subject

With a special focus on resilience, transport and mobility, buildings and the role of digital tools in reshaping the urban facilities and our way of living, we sat down with four distinguished professionals to chat via video call about the long-term effect the pandemic experience might have on how we live together in cities and use the services. 

Sharing their insight and foresight are Eduardo Lazzarotto, Buildings Director of Product Management for Bentley Systems, Dr. Richard J. Vestner, Senior Director in the Digital Cities business unit of Bentley Systems, and Mark Saunders, director of the Centre of Excellence for Cities in Ferrovial Services and Academic Director of Master’s in Global Smart City Management. From people movement simulation for better planning of post-pandemic buildings to digital twins for achieving more with less, the speakers map the challenges and developments of the cityscape of the future. Ignasi Perez Arnal, Founder and CEO of the BIM Academy and Professor at the Zigurat Global Institute of Technology, moderated the video interview.

Watch the complete discussion to learn about how the opportunities we are exploiting in this crisis lead to transformational development.
