Article
Some urban regulations oblige to replace buildings with visual impact in the surroundings of a historical monument, what implies undesired sustainable and social consequences. We conducted a study to evaluate if alternative façade solutions can improve the assessment of cityscape integration and preferences for six tall buildings with visual impact...
Conference Paper
Design of teaching spaces influences the cognitive abilities of its users. Among the design variables, the colour stands out for the ease of its implementation and its aesthetic possibilities. Previous studies suggest that it can influence students' academic progress. However, due to the difficulty in studying their combinations, only a limited num...
Chapter
Cities are subject to constant changes and due to multiple factors of this continuous evolution, many architectural and urbanistic proposals, of greater or lesser interest, are lost, becoming part of the collective memory. New technologies allow us to reconstruct virtually those monuments that deserve being remembered and to show them to new genera...

This article aims to highlight the value of immer-sive panoramic photography, computerized drawing and traditional freehand drawing when representing the landscape, not only analyzing the particular interest inherent to each one of these techniques, but also underlining the added value that involves the integration of these three techniques when re...
Article

The validity of environmental simulations depends on their capacity to replicate responses produced in physical environments. However, very few studies validate navigation differences in immersive virtual environments, even though these can radically condition space perception and therefore alter the various evoked responses. The objective of this...
Chapter
We wanted to assess the opinion of citizens on proposed architectural solutions to integrate a set of buildings with a visual impact located in the historical centre of Valencia. Five scenarios were prepared, one of which being the current situation, using spherical photographic panoramas. To prepare the scenarios, a preliminary historiographic stu...
Conference Paper
Environmental simulations through rendering has an important role to play in the design process of and communication regarding the built environment. Technological advances allow for widely used printed renders with 360° panoramic representations to be displayed through head-mounted devices (HMD). However, the adoption of this technology should be...
Article
Objective: The present study aims to examine the influence of environmental color hue in a lactation room at a health center on users' affective response and preference. Background: Hospital design plays an important role in the emotional experience of patients. In this regard, many studies have attempted to find relationships between design var...
Article
The graphic tools most widely used for communicating the design of future urban spaces are 3D visualizations. These virtual images allow graphic designers to manipulate conditions to embellish the final image they present. But, what design attributes are associated with positive assessments? This paper attempts to identify the key design attributes...
Conference Paper
The methodology and results of a preliminary study that used virtual reality environments and surveys to analyze the emotional influence of color palettes in an interior space is exposed. Nine chromatic tones were selected and applied into a Virtual Reality architectural environment. Thirty trials were made with users who answered questionnaires ab...

p>La gran evolución tecnológica en los medios de representación arquitectónica durante las últimas décadas, ha abierto un nuevo abanico de posibilidades digitales para visualizar el espacio no construido. Los sistemas de inmersión espacial, desarrollados inicialmente por la industria del videojuego, han ido adentrándose en el escéptico ámbito de l...
Conference Paper
Environmental simulations are fundamental part of the architecture and design language. Different systems have been incorporated as technology has progressed. Renders, widely used in Architecture, also presents this development. Although the traditional printed presentation has not changed in recent years, new methods such as the 360-Render display...
Conference Paper

3D images or architectural renders are expressive tools widely used by architectural students to communicate their projects. Not only do these images have the task of transmitting the formal and functional characteristics of the project, but also need to evoke in users the sort of feelings and emotions which can only be aroused by experiencing the...

p class="textotesis1">El análisis del comportamiento visual ante un determinado estímulo supone una herramienta de estudio de la respuesta más inmediata e instintiva del observador. La reciente accesibilidad a la tecnología capaz de rastrear y registrar el recorrido de la mirada ante la observación de un estímulo, ha puesto un interés creciente en...
Article
Computer visualisations are widely used to evaluate future urban environments in international competitions. Rapid technological progress in graphics computer software has enabled architects and landscape planners to produce sophisticated images that are not only capable of transmitting the characteristics of the future environment, they also manag...
Article
Full-text available
The logical way to learn from the architectural space and then be able to design and represent it is, undoubtedly, that of experiencing it through all the sensitive channels that the space wakes up us. But since the last 30 years, much of our learning about space comes from images of architecture and not from the space itself. The art of architectu...

Es redundante afirmar a estas alturas que la realidad virtual ha supuesto una revolución en la representación de la arquitectura. Seductoras perspectivas realizadas mediante herramientas informáticas han invadido los medios de divulgación arquitectónica entremezclándose con las fotografías de arquitectura construida, hasta el punto de no saber (y n...

Project
The objective of the project is to develop a didactic tool kit which includes a set of practical exercises with 3D objects prepared for the use with augmented reality. The didactic toolkit is specified for vocational schools, colleges and universities where the graphical engineering subjects are compulsory. The didactic toolkit will allow to develop spatial skills of students of vocational schools and higher schools, to obtain practical experience in solving graphic exercises and will give an opportunity to enhance the quality of graphic education.
