Showcasing architectural features
2008-02-28 00:13:00
Their are a lot of different ways to showcasing architectural features online. The magazine Wallpaper are trialling a new thing on their web called “an interactive floor plan”. The idea is for the user to see the architectural drawings of a building to get an idea of layout and size, and they can then click on various arrows to see a photo of what the room looks like from that vantage point. Quite smart idea I have to say; it’s maybe not totally revolutionary but will definitely help the reader to get a better experience of the layout of the house. Here is an example in an article called Cabin by Lode architects. Ping tags technorati : wallpaper architecture lode architects Andra bloggar om: wallpaper, media, arkitektur, hus
