Borrowing from Animators: Introducing Animation Early in the Design Process in order to Better Represent Spatial Environments


Current technology allows us to combine traditional animation techniques and hand drawn sketches to produce quick virtual “walk-throughs” of proposed architectural interiors. This paper will provide examples and illustrate this technique. This method adds the element of time to traditional drawings, which is necessary for a better spatial understanding. The combination of current technology and hand sketching allows a resulting video to be made in hours rather than days.
