title Reduce to Understand: A Challenge for Analysis and Three-dimensional Documentation of Architecture
source ENVISIONING ARCHITECTURE: IMAGE, PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION OF HERITAGE [ISBN 978-83-7283-681-6],Lodz University of Technology, 23-26 September 2015, pp.388-397
summary For nearly thirty years, the digital phenomenon has integrated many disciplines. Those involved in image processing and analysis took advantage of this major technological breakthrough to revisit the tools and methods of their discipline. In this context, the architectural field, and more specifically the one of heritage analysis and documentation, have greatly benefited from the development of acquisition and visualization techniques. Today, it is no longer unusual to document a building with millions of three-dimensional spatial coordinates. Nevertheless, until the last century, documentation by drawing corresponded to a work of reverse engineering in which it belonged to the architect to understand the object and to represent its key feature. Today, 3D data acquisition technology promotes an increasingly “figurative” representation of architecture. In this paper, we consider some epistemological avenues for the integration of those new approaches to the requirements of architectural representation.
