Connecting the Real and the Virtual - design e-ducation [20th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-0-8] Warsaw (Poland) 18-20 September 2002, pp. 588-591
This paper sets out to demonstrate sample virtual models of historic buildings in Lodz which were generated in the Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning at the Technical University of ?ód?, to present some foreign examples as well as to discuss their possible applications. The presentation of historic buildings as computer models can be put to good use in popular-science multimedia presentations accessible to a wide audience. Current accessibility of digital studies, the presentation of architectural structures as 3D models offers a perfect means to complement our cultural knowledge/ awareness.
