Virtual Window / Interactive information system

Virtual Window

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Virtual Window

Discipline: Interior Architecture

The central element are nine plasma screens integrated into the inner side of the glass façade. Initially they present the same view one would enjoy looking through the windowed front of the building – only that it is in fact captured by an outdoor camera and simultaneously rendered as an image on the screens. When the application is activated, the camera can be steered in all directions such that details of Ground Zero appear on the giant display. If a building or site is selected, the actual camera shot morphs into a virtual view. This is an interactive animation that converts all available construction data into visual representations.
