the fourth dimension of architecture - the virtual counterpart
at the end of our research the following became main component of the realisation phase. we want to create a tool with the following components:
because the global projekt would be to complex to realize we carry out one of the main aspects - the information of the user about the inside of architecture. this we realize by generating a fourth building dimension by which the user is informed. the values which are produced by the building are visualised in a shape which represents the fourth building dimension. this shape can be sent to a mobile device where it can be interpreted. in this shape the following data are introduced:
• present people
• acoustic values
• net traffic
• movement level
the data which are sent to the server accrue by the following interfaces:
• the present people are determined by the bluetooth coding of the mobile devices. the system knows who
the original resource on www.rhizome.org/carnivore
• the movement is tracked with a cam. in processing we enumerate the pixel from one frame to the other. then the number of the altered ones are counted. so the movement op people can be measured.
the following screen shows th desctop version. the program produces a new shape every minute and transforms the old one in the z-axis. by this version the shape can be moved in all dimensions.
• the green slice shows the movement
the slices tick like a clock: every 3 seconds the bluetooth ip´s are checked - the other slices are filled with 400 values per minute. >animation
this litle ones can be sent to a mobile device.
like every code system this visualisation must be understood as a language. if you know the coding system you easily can interpret the information behind.

the following shows the desktop version. the present shapes are above the old ones are under it - there you can scroll back to previous ones. at the right you can see the present people.
