Visiting Student, Building Engineering & Architecture, University of Padua
Andrea Basso is currently studying Building Engineering and Architecture at the University of Padua. In these years he has learned how new multimedia tools can be implemented in the field of Architecture and Engineering, and how they can improve both the visualization and the construction process of the buildings. He is currently working on the church of S. Chiara in Naples with Caroline Bruzelius, Lucas Giles, and his fellow student from Italy, Elisa Castagna, investigating the architecture of the past with the 3D visualization media. He is also developing the theme of display of architectural models through the study of UNITY software and of BIM models’ transfer into virtual reality environments such as the Duke Immersive Virtual Environment.
