We are pleased to invite you to the guest lecture:
“Tall Buildings – Visual Impact Analysis in 3D City Models”
Klara Czyńska and Paweł Rubinowicz
from West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin, Poland
Thursday, May 25th, 2017, at 18.00
Amphitheater, Faculty of Architecture
The lecture will scope new digital techniques for visual impact analysis of tall buildings using 3D city models. In the past two decades tall buildings have become increasingly popular on the European continent. Most of them was built in 21 century. It causes rapid changes of landscapes of many cities and poses a threat for urban heritage. Therefore, there is a need for new simulation techniques useful in planning that in an objective and comprehensive manner will help to determinate the spatial consequences of tall buildings development.
Progress in the field of 3d city modelling, visualization of urban landscape, remote sensing technologies and geo-information systems creates opportunities for new digital urban analysis. Klara Czyńska will present the Visual Impact Size (VIS) method for measuring the visual impact of tall buildings into cityscape. Paweł Rubinowicz will present the Visual Protection Surface (VPS) method dedicated to protection of historical cityscape.
Research was developed partly within the 2TaLL project “Application of 3D Virtual City Models in Urban Analysis of Tall Buildings”“ (by Czyńska, Rubinowicz, Zwoliński; Polish-Norwegian Research Program 2013-2016). Digital tools was applied in praxis. Applications in planning for several cities in Poland (prof. Marzęcki, Czyńska, Rubinowicz, Zwoliński) and urban analysis for Berlin and Dresden will be presented.

Paweł Rubinowicz – Architect and assistant professor at West Pomeranian University of Technology (Zachodniopomorski Uniwersytet Technologiczny) in Szczecin, Poland (Cyber Urban Center). PhD at Cracow University of Technology in 2011: Chaos as the higher order in selected trends of contemporary architecture. Participant of the 2TaLL research project (2013-2016). He is an author or scientific publications on: chaos theory in architecture, fractal geometry and urban development of cities and co-author of urban studies for several cities in Poland. Individual exhibitions in 9 cities in Poland. Since 2009 curator of the Architects Gallery “Forma” in Szczecin. His actual research is focused on digital analyses of cityscape, software solution for 3D city models, and VPS method dedicated for protection of cityscape.
