summary Europe's architectural heritage is immensely rich and diverse; it contributes to the quality of life in our cities and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all corners of the world. Yet it is under increasing threat from insensitive planning, atmospheric pollution and commercial exploitation. There is urgent need to understand the complex evolutionary development of our urban habitats, to reconstruct what once existed, to archive what currently exists and to test, in context, proposed future architectural and planning interventions. The emerging multimedia technologies offer an unprecedented opportunity to make all this accessible to a wide range of interested agents - from citizens to tourists, from students to scholars, from conservationists to developers.
