Oddviz' Architecture-Photogrammetry

Oddviz bauen 3D-Schnittmodelle mit Photogrammetry, deren Textur aus tausenden Fotos zusammengeflanscht wird. Oben das Sofa Hotel in Istanbul, Video unten das Kinderheim El Orfelinato und auch hübsch: Ein oller Röhrenfernseher. (via prostheticknowledge)

Photogrammetry enables the buildings to be fully scanned in 3 dimensions with true scale both from inside and outside. Texture of the model being generated from photographs, overall model presents documental value.

Hotels are rich in spatial variety: Along with the residential elements such as bedrooms, living rooms, restrooms and kitchens, hotels also contain lobbies, bars, cafes, restaurants, fitness courts, spas, meeting rooms and exhibition spaces therefore they reflect visual complexity.

Oddviz documents and presents Sofa Hotel with complete interior detail with their work “Hotel”. Nearly 10,000 photos have been taken, processed and arranged according to the architectural plan. Final model is then visualized as sections of it are being removed during a video resembling medical imaging practices. This way, interior becomes observable with an optically impossible perspective.

Orphanages are dense and harmonious living spaces housing hundreds of children under same roof simultaneously. Abandoned Jewish Orphanage Building in Ortaköy (OHR-tah-keuy) Istanbul (also known as El Orfelinato) has been a home for thousand lives during its century old history. It holds the memory of the past in worn stairs and layers of paint.

oddviz sheds light upon the visual and spatial memory of El Orfelinato, documenting it as it is with photogrammetry and presenting it in doll house view.
