Visualisation and object design in virtual architecture
CAADRIA 2001 [Proceedings of the Sixth Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 1-86487-096-6] Sydney 19-21 April 2001, pp. 39-50
The design of virtual architecture is currently ill-defined and lacks a framework for understanding existing designs. We present a basis for the representation of virtual architecture that follows from the idea of conceptual metaphor. This approach addresses the limitations of current environments for designing virtual architecture by providing a basis for combining visualisation and object design.
