title 1:1 SIMULATION IN ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICE
source Full-scale Modeling and the Simulation of Light [Proceedings of the 7th European Full-scale Modeling Association Conference / ISBN 3-85437-167-5] Florence (Italy) 18-20 February 1999, pp. 57-66
summary Full-scale mock ups have a long and successful history within the architectural profession. There is consensus that future users as well as professionals are better able to make design decisions in full-scale and in real time. Full-scale analogue simulation must be implemented as part of a typical design process for the sake of our clients as well as the sake of the profession: the cost of doing anything less is enormous. Altonview believes it is possible to develop an economical, flexible and utilitarian architectural environmental system (AES) which can be used, with modifications, by all professionals. Additionally, the media needs to take an interest in the AES movement, which will change their focus from the building image to the user. American architectural schools need to increase their interest in AES as well. The AES movement can be closely linked with the zeitgeist that will define the next century as seen in further examples and references from the popular press.
