Reconstruction of Yuan Ming Yuan on Computer
CAADRIA '99 [Proceedings of The Fourth Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 7-5439-1233-3] Shanghai (China) 5-7 May 1999, pp. 425-428
Yuan Ming Yuan is regarded as a masterpiece of ancient Chinese architecture and garden. Its unfortunate ruin by the British and French Army more than 100 years ago became a shameful record in the history of China. Since then, although many Chinese have appealed for its reconstruction, a rebuilding project is believed to be impractical both from the economic and the historical aspect. So we develop a study on the task by using computer graphic technology as a visualization method. This paper will describe the process of modeling and rendering developed by 3rd year undergraduates and our continued attempt to create a VRML world on WWW.
