title “Not Every new Monday…”: on using computer-games technology in architectural design education
source Computing in Architecture / Re-Thinking the Discourse: The Second International Conference of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2006), 25-27 April 2006, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates
summary The application of new media is common practice in architectural offices and complements traditional forms of presentation such as drawings and physical ‘haptic’ models. Other interactive forms of presentation are also already available, for example in the realm of computer gaming, however the transfer and application of game engines to an architectural environment has not yet been explored in any depth. This paper looks at how “new media” can be used as a means of communicating architectonic information without simply emulating an already available traditional means of representation. We discuss the process of learning how “new media” (the computer as a multi media) can be used as a tool for the analysis and reconstruction of architecture. Using Mies van der Rohe’s unrealised project for a brick country house as a basis, a project was devised which communicates valuable design and analysis skills and also allowed us to explore the use of “new media” and to draw conclusions for teaching and research as well as to critically assess the opportunities, limitations and risks involved.
