We prototype architecture and urbanism through interactive visualization and custom software.

Test urban ideas in real time

HAL’s team is made of architects, game developers, city planners, and computer scientists, following a methodology we call “urban analog” or real-time analysis of multiple variables and solutions. 

We have been facilitating interactive visual communication for architecture and urbanism for over 20 years.

We utilize AI technology

We continually develop and use AI to do real time simulations of crowd flows, pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle travel. By utilizing our AI model we have been able to test how different iterations of a single design can effect our built environment.

We create digital twin models

Our Digital Twin models are living, breathing, urban laboratories where design ideas can be tested and shared. Through these models users can develop analytical, block-by-block alternatives and see how these alternatives influence the use and experience of urban places.
