ON MEASURING THE VISUAL COMPLEXITY OF 3D SOLID OBJECTS
e-Activities in Design and Design Education, B Tuncer, S Ozsariyildiz and S Sariyilidiz (eds), Europia, Paris, pp 147-156
A computational model of the visual complexity of solids is presented. It is based on using a qualitative representation for 3-dimensional objects as semantic graphs. Then information-theoretic measures are constructed for these graphs. This measure of visual complexity allows for the comparison of different architectural forms. An example of the application of this model is presented.
