Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Do New Visualization Techniques and Interests of the Architects Meet in Visualization? In this article I will examine some central aspirations of the visualization techniques and relate them to the intentions which are apparent in the visualizations of some well-known and interesting postmodernist and deconstructionalist architects. From an architect's point of view, one can consider essential the media aspect provided by the new technology. In this aspect the ways of transmitting information and the development of communication possibilities play crucial roles. The article is based extensively on the so called Essu-project.
