Virtual reconstruction and interactive applications for Korean traditional architectures


This paper describes a research project about Korean virtual architectural heritage. The aim of the project is to develop tools for virtual reconstruction and simulation. In shape and structure, Korean traditional architecture is different from Western building. Thus, it is difficult to adopt Western H-BIM (Historic Building Information Modeling) tools. Our tools developed in the project were designed to be suitable for Korean traditional buildings as well as architectural simulation that includes Korean characteristics. As a result, several virtual representations of Korean traditional architectures were made with our tools and used in the project’s interactive applications, all of which have been showcased at Digital Heritage Expo 2015 in Granada, Spain.
