title Educative Visuals Digital Delivery of Architectural Information for (potential) Heritage Buildings
source Eurographics Symposium Proceedings
summary The paper proposes models that address current issues and considerations at several key levels relating to treatment of architectural information, its presentation and delivery methods specific to architecture education requirements. It investigates fundamental digital communication strategies for the understanding of architec-tural work of heritage or potential heritage values, highlighting how digital simulations in particular could complement other media such as texts, drawings and photographs to facilitate an understanding of design. It proposes dynamic visual layering system of information and information types relating to site, construction, mate-rials, textures, design philosophy, etc, while also taking into account feedback from the intended audience.

The architectural work featured as an example is of high potential heritage value - an area of special interest in the context of a country with a relatively short architectural history as Australia. The information depicted in the model has a role to supplement a site visit or to communicate independently to the much larger audience who are unable to visit the site.

Although the paper does not insist on definite or final prescriptive techniques for the delivery of architectural information of heritage or potential heritage values, it suggests a possibility of standardisation in this area with features and considerations that need to be firstly addressed.
