||In order to simulate the visual effects of designs at eye level, it is necessary to construct
models from which (sequences of) images can be taken. This holds true for both Optical
Endoscopy and Computer Aided Visualisation techniques.
In what ways can an eye level approach stimulate spatial awareness and create insights into
the workings of a design concept? Can Endoscopic methods be used effectively as a creative
environment for design decision-making and teamwork and even to stimulate the generation
of new design ideas? How should modelmaking be considered if it is to be of use in an
‘impatient’ design process, and how can students be made aware of the opportunities of both
direct eye level observations from design models and of the more sophisticated endoscopic
This paper explores the theme of eye level modelling by focusing on a number of formal
exercises and educational experiments carried out by the Delft Media group in recent years.
An attempt is made to describe and evaluate these experiences, in order to draw conclusions
and to signal possible new opportunities for eye level composition for the benefit of both
design education and practice...
