Visual Modelling in Architectural Design

  • Tom W. Maver

Abstract

For some years now, the visual impact of buildings on the landscape has been a contentious issue at many public planning inquiries. This reflects the underdeveloped state of objective visual appraisal, particularly in the clear presentation of the harmful and enhancing effects of building proposals on the local environment. Notably, the accuracy and realism of traditional visual assessment methods has been called into question.
