The objective of this paper is to explore the application of BIM (Building Information Modeling) [1] in Urban Planning. Using BIM technology, urban planning and design from the three-dimensional information model to start, making the original two-dimensional drawings of the abstract has become “concrete” and “visualization”. In order to achieve the design goals and three-dimensional visualization, such as VR (virtual reality), designers use the three-dimensional planning diagram to communicate the design, discussion and optimization with the customer to be identified ultimately. By using the BIM simulation of the 3D terrain combined with the design to see whether the layout of the building is reasonable, designers guarantee that road and landscape design is up to design expectations. Through building information model, it is reasonable to analyze the sunshine, noise, ventilation and so on so forth. BIM delivers benefits the building project life-cycle in every aspect. For instance, it helps making better design decision, building more efficiently, and managing and maintaining building portfolios more effectively. BIM supports architects throughout the green design. It uses the concept to ameliorate reality with improved quality and efficiency. It ameliorates your creative vision with innovative technology solutions which enable you to impact the green design. This research case aims at identifying the shortcomings of the design through sunshine analysis and ventilation analysis, thus optimizing the design. This not only makes the planning and design more reasonable, but also can meet the corresponding green building standards at the beginning of the design.
