AbstractA three-dimensional computer graphic of the new Canadian Museum of Man, presently under construction, is used to explain current techniques for entering the building data and manipulating the geometric model. The final image consists of 200 sculptured surfaces used to represent the exterior envelope, windows and roof systems. Landscape architecture features are electronically stippled on to the geometric model to produce trees, bushes and building ivy.
