title Tactile models of elements of architectural heritage: from the building scale to the detail
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 434-446.
summary This paper describes the development of three-dimensional models, produced using digital fabrication techniques with the goal of providing a haptic experience of architectural heritage. These models were produced in three different representations: the building as a whole, elements and details. This study first undertakes a process of analysis and the formal decomposition of architectural components to identify basic or simplified elements which make it easier to understand the represented object by touching. The results obtained come from assessment tests of the tactile models as experienced by mainly blind individuals. Secondly, as part of this process, a method of constructing such models is defined. This study facilitates a greater understanding of the relationship between the represented objects (historic buildings) and the tactile models, and provides a technological and discursive basis for future implementation of tactile models in a specific context.
