About Virtual Spatial Modeling in Architectural Education
Spatial Simulation and Evaluation - New Tools in Architectural and Urban Design [Proceedings of the 6th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 80-227-2088-7], pp. 138-142
The professional perception of the architectural space characterizes the most advanced level of the architect’s mastership. In the article the virtual modeling is regarded as an effective way of forming the professional perception of integrity of architectural space. Computer technologies bring together bi-dimensional and three-dimensional languages of modeling and thus they help the procedure of movement of consciousness from the plane to volumetric images and back to the visual and mobile. They help to carry out the level-by-level analysis of the multilevel structure of an architectural reality in the mode of active dialogue. The process of interaction of consciousness with the model becomes accessible to studying. There appears an opportunity to manage this process with the aim of forming perception.
