      Test driving a cityscape

      The world's cities are growing all the time, and in France some are being
      modelled by computer for the purposes of urban redevelopment.

      Excerpt starting with my favourite bench expert (seriously):

      Architect Jan Gehl says: "You can never animate in a machine how people
      would like to sit on a bench or not like to sit on a bench.

      "It will always be a balance between using really genius technological
      tools to short-cut the working processes, to be able to assess quicker
      what you've thought up, and studying the real-life situation and using
      your own senses directly with the environment."
