Projection Mapping Fills Cambridge’s 16th-Century Chapel with Stars

Projection Mapping Fills Cambridge’s 16th-Century Chapel with Stars | visual data | Scoop.it
Attendees to a recent fundraising event inside University of Cambridge’s 16th-century chapel were treated to a spectacular display far above. The Gothic arches of King’s College Chapel were transformed into a canvas for mesmerizing views of stars, foliage, psychedelic clouds and university crests. The work was created by French projection artist Miguel Chevalier.

The visuals were generated in real-time, contributing to the theme of each speaker. During a presentation on black holes by Stephen Hawking, the room was transformed into a vision of deep space. Other topics touched on subjects ranging from health, to Africa, biology and physics.

Schematic of Structures: Charting History's Most Significant Works of Architecture

Schematic of Structures: Charting History's Most Significant Works of Architecture | visual data | Scoop.it

Yet another creation has rolled off the powerhouse infographics assembly line over at Pop Chart Lab, and this time, the indefatigable taxonomizers of alcohols and famous quotes have turned their attention to works of architecture.

The Schematic of Structures organizes what the designers describe as "90 eminent edifices erected and perfected throughout history." Arranged by height, the infographic lines up some of the greatest works envisioned and built by man since prehistory, from the Neolithic Cairn of Barnenez and the Parthenon to more modern creations like London's Gherkin and the Burj Khalifa.

5 Realistic Rendering Styles and the Future of Visualization

Architectural Visualization is a harsh mistress. We are seduced by it, but sometimes it leads us astray. While modeling, rendering, and post-production capabilities are always increasing, the realism that we see in renderings is not always proportionate to our ability to produce it. In other words, some renderings don't even look try to look real anymore; they are often dramatized until they look like science fiction or a romantic painting.

The Evolution of Architectural Visualization

The Evolution of Architectural Visualization | visual data | Scoop.it
Visualization has been married to Architecture since the beginning of time. (Let's say we start the courtship at 15000 BC in the Paleolithic Era.) And in any relationship, communication is the key to success.

 

At each step of the architectural process – planning, design, and construction – visualizations provide a look into the future at the envisioned physical structure (or place). Over centuries, architects’ mania for perfection has demanded more realistic reflections of their imaginations, and technology has progressed to make these dreams come true. Whether engraved, sketched, painted, mini-modeled, or rendered, the more detailed the visualization, the clearer the communication.
