A tool for a first analysis of architectural facades
Automation in Construction 5 (5) (1997) pp. 379-391
This work presents a tool for analysing the figurative structure of architectural fašades. The procedure begins by singling out the elementary shapes which make up the fašade image; it detects and identifies them as "area objects", even if present in combination in virtual or mental form and groups them into classes of equal objects. A second step is the analysis of the inner structure of the classes: equidistant, arithmetical and geometrical sequences, or alternate distances are distinguished.The procedure ends by singling out the symmetries which structure the fašade image and displaying them, pointing out their implied hierarchy through a thickness differentiation.
