Procedural Modeling of Architectural Heritage
Starting with a survey of existing structures (with 3D scanning or photogrammetry), a gen- eralized space model shall be derived from the surveyed data. The next step will be the development of architectural analysis methods that can be applied to the space model
(e.g., circulation paths, areas devoted to specific space use, lighting concepts, proportional analysis of spatial zones, proportional analysis of building parts). These methods then need to be formalized so they can be integrated into a procedural modeling system. Applying the system to model a number of representative buildings will allow a comparative analysis, so that similarities and variations can be identified, which allows deriving plausible design and construction parameters.
