Digital Visualization for Historic Preservation

Historic Preservation

Fall 2012

Brigitte Cook, instructor, with Chad Shores

Digital Visualization Techniques for Historic Preservation was a complementary workshop to the Historic Preservation Studio 1. It provided students with a variety of visual tools to choose from to read and document a building. This workshop was about developing dexterity in architectural representation in order to conceptualize and materialize the environmental, spatial and social aspects of an individual piece of architecture. Each digital tool was introduced within the context of the field of Preservation. We took advantage of new developments in technology to build a computer drawing, which was then effectively manipulated and reproduced.
