“Vizhen” is the name of our custom software that we have developed to better communicate the whole picture. The Vizhen software enables us to show very large geographic areas, yet with a high level of close‐up detail — all in real‐time. It is similar to taking a design project and making it into a 3D video game, sans the zombies.
“Vizhen” is also the 3D visualization arm of Winston Associates (now MIG) that specializes in real‐ time simulation services for architecture, urban design, engineering, landscape, and community planning. Our work is used for design review and public approvals, envisioning zoning codes, collaborative design, and conveying a vision on a large or small-scale. We provide services for municipalities, developers, design and engineering firms.
The goal of all graphics is to tell a story, as designers, not just 3D dorks, that we get it and understand how best to communicate graphically the key elements of a project. By helping people understand the big picture, find solutions, and get on the same page sooner the sooner the project moves forward.
