title Making use of 3D programming to document and enhance an architectural vocabulary: Case study dealing with artefacts of the Canadian built heritage
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 133-142
summary This paper examines the objectives and describes the methodology of an ongoing research project concerned with the built heritage of Montreal, Canada; more precisely, with the openings (doors, windows, bow-windows, dormers, etc.) in residential buildings. Within the framework of this project, we aim to implement digital environments to document and enhance the architectural vocabulary of openings. We adopt 3D programming to describe the way in which the artefacts are assembled from different components. The aim of this process is to enable the introduction of variations into the principles governing the composition of the artefacts, so as to generate new configurations.
