3DCAMP Houston 2012 Registration is now open!

The goal of 3DCAMP Houston 2012 is to encourage and educate individuals about the use of 3D in various disciplines; therefore 3DCAMP 2012 is returning with STEAM, an educational initiative that supports 3DCAMP Houston’s educational goal of incorporating and encouraging the blending and education of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM).

“The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Houston is pleased to help further the community’s appreciation and knowledge of the many aspects of 3D applications in our modern world. The rapid evolution in visualization technology is playing a critical role in advancing many important areas, from medical and surgical techniques to new methods of energy realization and information transmission,“ said Mark A. Smith, dean of the college. “With the university playing a critical role nationwide in these developments, it is satisfying as well as natural to help bring this understanding to our community through 3DCAMP 2012.”

Show me you model

Step into the architecture model

Discover models from above, from below, from within and from a distance, from the budding idea, through failed and successful experiments and leading to the final solution.As a visitor you will be even a part of an architecture model. The entire exhibition space is designed as a model in the ratio 2:1.A real working model, where the architect’s hand-drawn lines and notes are evident on walls and floors.

“It takes a special work to step into a model. You have to lift the model up and put your eye right up to a window, so as to be able to enter the room there. When we look at the model, so we tread as Alice in Wonderland deep, deep into the model., we look at the light falling., we are looking at the dimensions of surfaces and distances between walls. It is only in the model that we can really find some opportunities that did not exist before we began. ” 
Karsten Gori, architect MAA, Leth & Gori.
