Virtual Reality in Heritage Studies and Historical Reconstruction through Animation – A Case Study of a 16th Century University Complex in the Ottoman World

Abstract: The paper describes the research and development of a virtual project based on the visualisation of measured architectural and construction details and extended research into a heritage building i.e. a 16th century Islamic complex undertaken as part of an architectural curriculum subject entitled ‘Heritage studies’. The modelling was focused on selected portions of the Suleymaniye complex in Istanbul Turkey, while the animation and storyboard integrated findings from a research extension of the project which looked at the link between the social structure of the city with the overall hierarchical nature of the architecture and planning of the complex. Virtual reality and animation tools were used within the process of analysing the architecture and construction technology within the background of the social structure of the Ottoman society during 15th and 16th centuries. The aim was not only to deepen constructional understanding but to discover the historical and social context which lay behind the development of its city life. The virtual reality dimension of the study focused on a virtual walkthrough and animation of the overall Suleymaniye complex and selected parts of the complex such as the madrasa and the ‘imaret’ or soup kitchen. The focus of the virtual walkthrough is the Süleymaniye Mosque which is surrounded by four medreses, a Darulhadis Medrese which had specialized in teaching Hadith, a medical school, a primary school, a hospital, a reflection hall, a caravanserai, shops, bath house, imaret (soup kitchen), caravanserai (inn), darussifa (hospital) or the hammam covering a 7.3 hectares wide area. Virtual reality was further used to enhance the story board based on the study on the link between the ‘waqf’ or pious foundations, and development of Ottoman urban life with the ultimate aim of linking these complexes to the social system and structure of urban society.

Gaining End User Involvement through Virtual Reality Mock-Ups: A Medical Facility Case Study

Abstract: The use of construction mock-ups have become common practice to validate design and work throughconstructability challenges. The use of physical mock-ups offer significant benefits as a communication toolamongst the project team but must be balanced with a potentially large costs to construct. With the advent ofmany new virtual prototyping technologies, project teams now have the potential to perform mock-ups in virtualenvironments. This paper will present a case study of a 14,000 m2 (150,000 ft2) medical office constructionproject which used both physical and virtual mock-ups to allow the facility to meet end-user needs with minimalre-work during the on-site construction. The virtual mock-up was carried out using the Immersive ConstructionLab at Penn State to review a rendered model of single occurrence space in the facility. The paper willdemonstrate the end-user and construction team feedback about the virtual mock-up processes and the benefitsand challenges it presents.

4D models to support safe planning of hospital renovations

Abstract: During hospital renovations, medical processes are, oftentimes, in progress at the same time as construction processes are. As a result, construction work may interfere with ongoing medical work. These conflicts often have undesirable effects on the vulnerable medical processes, in particular in relation to patient safety. Hence, during hospital renovation planning activities medical and construction experts have to work closely together to devise sound construction plans that align these two processes. To support such planning activities, this paper presents a method to model hospital renovation activities using 4D models that link a virtual representation of the hospital and several temporary objects, such as dust barriers, with planned construction sequences. We developed the method in an action research effort working closely together with architectural and medical practitioners on a hospital renovation project in the Netherlands. Throughout this action research we iteratively generated 4D models of the project and applied these models by supporting decision and communication tasks of practitioners in the ongoing project planning process. Next to the method itself, the paper also reports about some these first applications of the model that we were able to observe. These applications show that the method allows construction managers and medical specialists to develop 4D models that help to mutually evaluate the effects of a chosen construction sequence on ongoing medical processes.
