    Composition of Buildings in Urban Settings

    Complete building masses themselves become components of larger-scale urban compositions. These compositions change over time, as old buildings are demolished and new buildings are erected. Urban form databases now enable architects to place proposed buildings in context, and simulate their appearances from important vantage points within the city.
