Advances in photographic and computer tech­nology have made simulating the design of a project before its actual construction one of the most important tools available to architects and engineers today. No other method permits de­signers to test alternatives in such an efficient and cost-effective way. Design Simulation: Use of Photographic and Electronic Media in Design and Presentation is a step-by-step approach to a variety of simulation techniques. This classic book outlines many original concepts that are in widespread use today.
 
Here is practical guidance to all major areas of design simulation, including:
 
·    Programming--the "first level" of simulation in two-dimensional graphic form. Simplified methods for forecasting entire projects and illustrating complex interrelationships.
 
·    Design sketches--current techniques for de­picting projects and space.
 
·    Photo drawings--how to apply photography to the finished presentations.
 
·    Models--traditional methods of model photog­raphy as well as more advanced methods such as snorkel and modelscope photographic sim­ulation.
 
·    Computer graphics--two dimensional wire frames and 3-D solid modeling graphics for depicting architectural space and engineering studies.
 
Rather than using isolated examples of com­puter or photographic functions or capabilities, Design Simulation illustrates simulation tech­niques in the context of detailed case studies of real projects. Part of one chapter is devoted to the simulation of an entire city and a large scale project within the city, digitized and dis­played in both computer drawings and artists' renderings of the completed project. A number of other completed projects are illustrated as well, showing how the original simulated presentations compared with the finished product.
 
For architects and engineers, interior de­signers and landscape architects, teachers and students, Design Simulation is a practical, accessible introduction to this powerful design tool. Heavily illustrated on every page, the case study examples in the book are shown with powerful visuals that get the message across clearly. The concepts and examples are still applicable to today's design process. Many examples pre-date the use of BIM, Building Information Modeling. The Aspen Project illustrated in this book, for example, digitizing an entire town, introduced the same technology that now propels Google Earth.
