Abstract: "This project had as objectives the development of a computed graphics capability for simulation; the investigation of the use of this tool in the design process; and exploration of ways of organizing data so as to make the computed graphics technique useful both as a presentation device and as a deesign tool. The study involved the computation, plotting, and rendering of sequential perspectives of a space so as to indicate in the fom of a five minute filmed sequence the nature of the visual experience as one 'walks through' the as yet unbuilt space. The description of the elements of a simulation system, of development stages in this study, and the conclusions reached as to limitations and capabilities suggest a specification for an operable system within the economics of contemporary professional practice and outline the need for further developmental studies."
