How difficult is it to photoshop the realistic number of people into architectural renderings for presentation for public spaces like plazas and parks? And "are these people a true indication of how a public space will be used?" Brent Toderian, planning director of the city of Vancouver thinks that firms will sometimes photoshop more people doing incredibly interesting things that wouldn't necessarily happen. He also adds "They're the architectural equivalent of the McDonald's hamburger looking much better in the picture than it does in real life." Big cities usually can catch a glorified rendering, but it's the smaller cities that Toderian is worried about (don't get had, smaller cities!) [Planetizen]
