The media of architecture

The presentation of architecture has always been a challenge for architects: how to present built space for those who cannot experience it live and how to reproduce a structure in optional numbers? In the 20st century photography and film making helped spreading architectural styles; while in the 21st century tentative media did, like data files, essential for 3D printing, or virtual reality applications adding another layer to built environment. This selection presents the works, plans, successes and failures of such pioneer media.
