When someone mentions architecture visualization, most immediately think of sketches, computational renderings, and drawings. This connection occurs because we almost always associate visualization with picturing a project that is not yet built, either for the validation of aesthetic and functional decisions or to represent the idea to a client, who is often unfamiliar with technical drawings. Yet in addition to considering superficial elements such as materials, plans, textures, and colors, when carrying out a project, the architect needs to be aware of technical issues that are invisible to the naked eye, which may directly influence the project. Understanding how heat is transferred between materials and surfaces, how structural efforts are distributed in a support element, and even how sound waves are dissipated in a space is vitally important to improve specifications and avoid future construction problems. But these processes, despite significantly influencing the success of the project and the comfort of its use, are invisible to the eyes. Being able to highlight them in a graphic language can help all parties, including the architects themselves, the engineers, the manufacturers, and even the customers, better understand the project and make better decisions. Usually these graphics are made through color gradients, always accompanied by captions to show numbers and other data, providing beautiful aesthetic results. View more View full description
