Architectural Visualization An Analysis from Human Visual Cognition Process

  title={Architectural Visualization An Analysis from Human Visual Cognition Process},
  author={L. Chen}
Three-dimensional visualization has been employed extensively by architects as a medium for explaining architectural concepts since the availability of computer-aided design. It has been proved to be a far more effective communication technique compared with the conventional methods such as technical drawings and lexical documentation. However, the reason why three-dimensional visualization is better than the other techniques has not been explicitly examined. This article describes the problems… Expand

The separability of working memory resources for spatial thinking and language processing: an individual differences approach.
  • P. Shah, A. Miyake
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of experimental psychology. General
  • 1996
The current study demonstrates the separability of spatial and verbal working memory resources among college students and demonstrates that both the processing and storage components of working memory tasks are important for predicting performance on spatial thinking and language processing tasks.

Principles of mental imagery
Imagery can be used to improve memory, perceptual skills, even creativity. Numerous experiments carried out over the past 20 years have probed the nature of mental imagery and unlocked its powers.Expand
Visual perception.
  • R. Haber
  • Medicine
  • Annual review of psychology
  • 1978
Although the majority of children successfully develop the ability to focus visually and to make fine discriminations in visual materials during the primary years, some will be well into the intermediate grades before these skills are adequately developed for visual learning tasks. Expand
Cognitive Load During Problem Solving: Effects on Learning
  • J. Sweller
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • Cogn. Sci.
  • 1988
It is suggested that a major reason for the ineffectiveness of problem solving as a learning device, is that the cognitive processes required by the two activities overlap insufficiently, and that conventional problem solving in the form of means-ends analysis requires a relatively large amount of cognitive processing capacity which is consequently unavailable for schema acquisition.

Words and Buildings, A Vocabulary of Modern Architecture
A pioneering and much-cited study of the relationships between architecture and verbal language, and a historical analysis of the vocabulary of architectural criticism as it has developed in the WestExpand
Mental imagery
An inspiringly broad range of work that focuses on mental imagery is introduced, which provides theoretical insights and an overview of the state of empirical understanding, where it is heading, and how mental imagery relates to other cognitive and sensory functions. Expand
The magical number seven plus or minus two: some limits on our capacity for processing information.
The theory provides us with a yardstick for calibrating the authors' stimulus materials and for measuring the performance of their subjects, and the concepts and measures provided by the theory provide a quantitative way of getting at some of these questions. Expand
