ModCity was founded by LiPS life.people.space, Connix RDBM Architects, Big Picture and Robin Seijdel. Robin is the main face behind ModCity. He has a background in Sustainable Urban Development and has contributed to the development of several Decision Support Systems. He focusses on the substantive aspects, whilst not ignoring the strategic & political components of large projects. In projects he often has the role of “Chief Information Officer”, but he also acts as a consultant for financial and other issues, such as land use, sustainability and mobility. For each project a specific team is assembled.
The mission of ModCity is to improve and speed up the Urban Development decision making process, by making the complexity manageable. We believe that providing more quantifiable data as early as possible, creates a better basis for decisions. A good term for this is the “Common Operational Picture”. By separating the factual information from the subjective & political aspects, the discourse will be about the latter, as it should be.
