Project Description

I’ve been loosely involved with City of Hope for around 15 years. The work has never involved much architecture, but a recent reevaluation of their master plan caused me to dust off a site model I built years ago.

I updated the model and moved everything to SketchUp. This allowed real time adjustments to be made visually on the fly. Each phase of the master plan was added to a date tab within the model. From there it was easy to see what the campus would look like at any given period of time.

Whether using a tool like SketchUp, Revit or any other software, it is a good idea to have such a model to help visual people understand project impacts. This particular model led to reopening the master plan for further revisions.
