  • Abstract:

    The rapid generation of computer models from existing buildings will enable to enhance creativity and innovation within the architectural design process. However there is no effective system to perform such process, so a new approach based on the replication of the human vision process is proposed. This process uses two-dimensional photos to create three-dimensional computer models either to produce sophisticated photo-realistic renderings or to generate surface models for simulation purposes and rapid prototyping applications. The starting part of the computer code is briefly introduced here from a mathematical perspective. The proposed system intends to be a very robust, versatile and flexible computer tool that will enable to do architectural redesign of buildings from non-existing digital models.
