title 4D Building Model - A Conceptual System of the Time Dimension in the Building’s Life
source Vienna University of Technology; Building Science & Technology
summary The research topic ”4D Building model: a conceptual system of the dimension of time in building’s life” is the concept of a web-based interface of a databank that stores and visualizes information of the building’s life process. It is an organization data model that brings together the serial steps of the lifetime of a building, following the design, construction and its operation time. Observing the aforementioned process as an entity, the model aims at approaching the passage of time during it, depicting the temporal relations between past, present and future steps. Visualized stored information depict the becoming of the building in time. It attempts to approach the idea of 4D architecture and explore how the dimension of time is incorporated into the model. It studies the role of information in architecture and building process observing it changing in time. The aim of this research project is to define the frame of a conceptual information system, that could develop in a plug-in by an existing design software. The model will support the design and building procedure operating as the building memory, and reporting its behaviour during its life time. In its data base, there will be reported the serial and parallel actions during the design and construction phase and additionally the reports of the monitoring evaluating system during its operational time. The final model should provide several possibilities of decision making, regarding the energy consumption, the materials life span, the costs, the participation of different firms and components.
