Introduction  By using various techniques of representation of space. isometric views. but those pictures has little possibilities of activating attention and emotional response.  Different stages of projects are represented on different levels of representation. architects evaluate the spatial values of their projects.orthogonal and axonometric projections as floor plans. objective forms of representation .  They also have low potential of dynamical operation that involves more complex levels of information. from conceptual to final presentations. In architecture. . and communicate with their clients and collaborators. that is relevant in proposal of the project to the human user. including visual spatial locality and temporality. sections. has great importance in exact technical description. elevations.

as deeper involvement of spectator in to the pictorial space. Byzantine or Chinese drawings. maintains space distance between picture space and viewer space. is historically established in the period of renaissance. Perspective drawing as graphic space representation. geometric abstraction and some kind of imitation of real sensory mediated visual space. not only by visual illusion of the third dimension of physical space. through linear perspective graphic representation of space. Many different styles of pictorial representations. Notion of virtuality is mainly correlated to visual aspects of space. includes the real and virtual dimension of space. from Egyptian. That particular kind of picture creation includes pictorial spatial representation. as simulation of the basic qualities of physical space by graphics. to orthogonal or axonometric projections in technical drawings.  Representation that enables virtuality.Brief History  Computer digital technology and graphics established widely a new form of space – not only representational or pictorial but virtual space. but providing some kind of psychological involvement and transfer of the spectator .

renovations. Even in those three stages. .  Construction and supervision stage (on site execution. supervision and overall observation on the progress).3) are really of our concern. approval. in which three stages (1. electrical and other drawings). design concept). space lustrations). elevations. plans.  Sketch design stage (conceptual sketch.  Post occupancy evaluation (modifications. We can identify five stages in the total architectural consultation process (Maheshwari and Warsi. analysis and solution). form and space. planning consideration. problem identification.2. structural designs. data. 3D views. codes and standards. the second stage is the area of focus in this study. supplying the contractor.  Working drawing stage (detail design in scale and working sheet. The five stages are:  Introductory stage (client’s brief. climate and other studies. mechanical. model study. but can be identified with a process of different stages. alterations. functional diagram. literature studies.Design Process In Architecture  The creative part of the design process is very hard to grasp in a formal way. 2003).

Perspective .

but they are the pictorially mediated informational matrices that has common features with direct perception of the world. Psychological and physiological character of perception are more complex than any representation on two dimension. claiming that the optic array from a picture and the optic array from a physical world can provide the same information without providing the same stimulation.  J. . and not a mere convention.  So perspective pictures are not pictures equivalent to direct visual retinal perception as simulated vision.Virtuality And Space Sensation  Perspective pictures has no direct equivalence to natural visual stimulation of eye vision.J. Gibson.

• Virtual reality in architectural representation is used to visualize complex information of object construction and form. to interactive exploration. but simulation of some dynamic changes in virtual environment. thermal or acoustic conditions. . as passive perceptual experience of designed space.Virtual Architectural Spaces And Augmented Reality  Virtual reality and virtual environments in architecture becomes a synonym for computer generated 3d real-time graphic environments. or to simulate and explore other dynamic data of building development. to simulate different variants of design. • Virtual reality is today evolving from 3d previously planned computer animations.  Contemporary digitalized virtualization enables not just a form of telepresence as remote presence. 3D real-time computer environments provides representation more equivalent to natural sensory space perception through interactive media and motion involved in representation. as lightning.

from perspective invention to contemporary digitalized real-time remote operation. but also becomes active part of the real physical architectural space. • Virtual reality and virtual architecture could be just part of conceptual or representational level of project development. that could be find through history of representations. Thank You . but expansion of informational pictorial space conceptions.Conclusion • Virtuality is not just advanced media product that enables representation and simulation of reality by perfect pictorial imitation.
