Photosynth for Urban Visualisation

By October 1, 2008 One Comment

We haven’t had much chance recently to put Photosynth through its paces – but one natural application is for the visualisation of architecture. Hidenori Watanave and students from Tokyo Metropolitan University have used it in such a way to create a ‘synth’ of the Nakagin Capsule Tower” by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa:

We are still undecided on photosynth, at the moment it seems like an impressive tech demo, if they offered the ability to download the point cloud it would make it a much more interesting application…

See http://archidemo.blogspot.com/ for more of Hidenori’s work.
