title Pictorial Genre and Discourse of Future in Digital Visualization of Architecture and Planning

summary This paper seeks to outline a theory of pictorial genre in discourses of future at play in digital visualisation of architecture and planning for communicative purposes. It claims that pictorial genre is crucial to the way we understand depictions of future in architectural and planning communication. Accordingly, professionals dealing with communication matters in architecture and planning should yield for a sufficient awareness of the function of pictorial genre—not least as concerns the adoption of digital technologies for the modelling and presentation of spatial matters. This is urgent since these technologies (primarily Geographic Information Systems, GIS) and software systems for spatial modelling and presentation do not include any aspect of pictorial genre in their current state of development.
