summary This paper seeks to explore the process of generating visual representations from building information models in a formal way. Based on the reference model of the visualization pipeline a more advanced model is developed which allows for the consideration of different levels of detail in all stages of the visualization pipeline. The construction of complex visualizations from simpler building blocks is complemented by the successive subdivision of building information to generate the partial visualizations from. The contributions of this paper are threefold. First, it provides a formal model for information models, for visualization models and for the connection between the two sides expressed with mathematical logic. Second, it generalizes the idea of construction multimodels and utilizes it in a new way in the context of visualizations. Third, it connects the multimodel concept as a model of complex information models to the visualization pipeline as a model of the visualization process.
