[EN] The main objective of this paper is to contribute to the knowledge of the topography of the city of Cartagena in the early Roman Empire times. A Geographic Information System has been used with data from numerous archaeological excavations, available historic maps and new GPS observations referred to landmarks of that era that are currently on the soil surface. Some meaningful results are: the compilation of spatial information from different sources in a single database, the creation of thematic maps and the generation and analysis of digital elevation models based on these data, which were compared with the contemporary...

[EN] The efficiency of building information models (BIM) for the management of architectural information calls for the development of heritage information modelling (HIM) as a specific application. Using the documentation required for the legal protection of a monument as our starting point, we have created a HIM for the Church of San Pedro in Arcos de la Frontera (Cádiz, Spain). The HIM not only provides the information outputs required for the administrative procedure but also reveals the obsolescence of this procedure and its own usefulness as an efficient tool for the comprehensive management of protected heritage

[EN]This paper focuses on texture accuracy for a reliable simulation of construction materials present in some important historic monuments on the World Heritage List, dating back to Late Antiquity in Ravenna (Italy). A series of novel strategies will be explained in order to take advantage of automatic texturing solutions of 3D digital models created by Structure from Motion (SfM) applications. These monuments will be used as case studies toillustrate a shadow removal technique on Lambertian surfaces (stone, mortar, bricks, etc.) from apparent colour texture and a rapid approach for optic simulation of mosaic decoration. The latter consists of splitting a...

[ES] Las reconversiones de mezquitas en iglesias constituyen una problemática compleja y heterogénea, frecuentemente abordada en la historiografía marginal o fragmentariamente. Un estudio de conjunto de las mezquitas cristianizadas de Toledo y Córdoba permite realizar un aproximación más amplia, así como una primera sistematización de los procesos arquitectónicos típicos. También en los casos analizados se detectarán los criterios de formalización y trazado que operaron, resolviendo la convivencia entre nuevo y viejo en reformas, o la integración de algún elemento islámico en reedificaciones más generales. Todo ello, a la postre, permite desmentir algunos errores comunes, y comprender mejor cómo se abordaba...

[EN] The technology employed in virtual graphic representation is in full expansion by means of numerous emerging applications among which we highlight Augmented Reality. Diverse factors converge in this process: the graphic supports, the perceptive experiences or the nature of the devices for their interaction with people. The research 1 project prepared for the Gothic-style Silk Market Building called the “Lonja de los Mercaderes” in Valencia (UNESCO Monument Heritage Site, 1996) has developed the design of an Augmented Reality application with the aim to observe and validate its usability as an accessibility resource to diverse contents of this monumental building...

[EN]This article is a contribution to the idea of understanding drawing as a way of apprehending an object in general, and capturing architecture in particular, as a way of defining the tangible which will later be present in a building. In order to do this, we take as a reference point some drawings by Luis Borobio (1924-2005), architect and Professor of Aesthetics, a poet and creator of caricatures, which illustrate his books, and which, as freehand sketches, have the singular value of allowing us to understand that which they represent in a simple and effective way. This study seeks to...

[EN] Study of the monastic architecture of the Order of Saint Jerome or Hieronymites shows architectural ensembles which are either very deteriorated or in ruins, as in the case of the Monastery of Santa María de la Murta. As with any heritage intervention, prior, exhaustive understanding of the building and its history at all levels is required, including not only formal and construction aspects but also functional and typological aspects that require consideration of design-related issues and use of the spaces and the Order’s monastic rules which decisively influenced the configuration process. Many historical gaps that ruins no longer enable...

[EN] This paper continues the research of an innovative teaching proposal, partially addressed at the past E.G.A. International Conference under the approach of an ‘imaginary trip into the designer’s mind’. The objective is focused on developing mechanisms associated to graphic thinking and encouraging uninhibited, effective and encouraging uninhibited, effective and quick response sketching as a typical quick response sketching as a typical ideation resource. ideation resource.For years, ideation drawing has starred different educational proposals within the Architectural Graphic Expression’s academic sphere traditionally related to non-figurative drawings. Intentionally, the process of ideation is now reversed, intending to get into the designer’s...

[EN] The population of Zumárraga, in the province of Guipúzcoa, is fortunate to preserve its original late Gothic wooden parish church. The geometric analysis has shown the high speculative level of its architectural design and the extraordinary coherence of its system of proportions
