title A future through an architectural past? Designing an online information package for Al Jahili Fort
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 73-82
summary This paper details the process that students of UAE University’s Department of Architectural Engineering have undergone in packaging architectural heritage data online. Facilitated by the Abu Dhabi Authority for Cultural Heritage, students were introduced to historical data. They digitally reconstructed a historical fort in Al Ain, UAE – Al Jahili Fort – and investigated methods of packaging the gathered information online. Some observations and assessments (strengths and weaknesses) pertaining to the unique historical information packaging are highlighted in this paper. In addition to acquiring skills in producing architectural abstractions and graphic composition, students assessed several online interactive techniques. A set of rules or patterns were prescribed to enhance the clarity of chosen data. While providing insights to the processes of and considerations in designing an online information package for an architectural heritage project, the underlying objective is to question the possibilities and role necessary in sculpting the future of CAAD education to propel the discipline forward through the medium. What would be the implications? It also asserts the notion that digital space may be architectural education’s imminent next ‘final’ frontier.
