  • Abstract:
    Hybrid buildings are defined as buildings that combine both new and old elements for reasons such as expansion, rehabilitation, redevelopment and regeneration. The advantage to maintaining building value and facilities management are also discussed. The research project described seeks to explore digital tools such as photogrammetry as a means of acquiring existing building information in hybrid building design projects.The project is based on the premise that "as-built" information acquired using digital tools can be combined in a mixed-reality modelling environment for interpretation, analysis and use as part of a digital architecture process, thereby providing an homologous and flexible data source at minimal expense in time and cost. Discussed are the methodologies proposed for this research.
