UNDERSTANDING CHANGES IN HERITAGE ARCHITECTURE - Can We Provide Tools & Methods for Visual Reasoning?

I Dudek, J. Y. Blaise

Abstract

When studying heritage architecture, and trying to represent and understand the development of artefacts, one should not only examine key moments in their evolution, but describe the whole process of their transformation - thereby correlating contextual causes and architectural consequences. In this contribution, we introduce a methodological framework of description of architectural changes, the corresponding visual tools, and finally present elements of evaluation. The results we report show the description framework favours information discovery: cross-examination of cases, analysis of causal relations, patterns of change, etc.
