title Anatomy of a Building - Introducing interactive RGB lenses for architectural data visualization
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 1, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 739-748
summary The paper proposes an alternative way to present architectural information, using color filters - specifically RGB lenses - as an interface to emphasize or reveal the internal structure or hidden logic of an architectural artifact. In an interplay of analogue and digital techniques, it employs rules of color blocking in order to highlight certain aspects of complex buildings, urban plans, or interiors, which cannot be discovered using conventional visualization methods. In this research, the authors developed an interactive RGB lens-interface and techniques for superimposed color visualizations that can be used for an enhanced visualization of the internal structure of a building. By applying physical or digital color lenses, viewers can perceive individual layers of project visualizations, in order to understand certain tectonic or construction logics, such as skin, structure or infrastructure. Based on existing bibliography, the paper presents the workflow from drawing, 3D model or photograph to RGB visualization, through a series of test case scenarios applicable to the field of architecture and design.
