VH_APAU-Visualisation for the Heritage of Asia-Pacific Architecture and Urbanism

Many places in the Asia-Pacific are experiencing rapid development and urbanisation in the past few decades. This has presented many opportunities and dilemmas in both urban and rural built environment. Meanwhile, this status quo forms a heteroglossic context for built environment heritage with an entangled collision as well as cohesion between the old and new, virtual and real, physical and intangible, community and individual, and so forth. The equally diverse visualisation approaches and technologies pose many interesting research questions. What is the role of visualisation in the heritage and what does this mean for the past, present and future? The answers may lie along the following paths: a visualisation-based investigation for exploring the history of the places, emerging technology introduces new approaches for heritage visualisation, visual materials have formed an indefensible part of the architectural heritage, an enquiry of what visualisation means for people and also for the built environment in the eras. As Nicholas Temple notes ‘role perspective as a redemptive view of order, whose appropriation of reality (into paradigmatic forms or representation) continues to influence the way architects perceive and define space’.
