source Full-Scale Modeling in the Age of Virtual Reality [6th EFA-Conference Proceedings]
summary Before architecture is put into reality it is simulated, either by means of drafts, or plans, models, or videos etc. .All these simulations represent anticipations of a later reality, instructions for action, sometimes they are no more than forecasts. Whether they hold true is up to the built object to prove. Only the full-scale throws light on spatial impact, the quality of design, the environmental compatibility, the value in use and finally, on the constructional accuracy regarding any decisions followed through with. The focus of working at the Department for Experimental Building Construction of the Graz University of technology is aimed at getting the students acquainted with these possibilities during their studies. Planning as well as building is carried out right on the spot and thus the process starting with the mere idea right down to the architectural reality, as well as the feedback, however in reverse, can be witnessed and perceived.
