Abstract

The new technologies spawned by the evolution of CAD constitute the fundamental basis for the investigative work of Research Group HUM799. Based on different methods for conducting architectural surveys, they may give rise to graphical models that are not only capable of assisting dynamic processes of architectural heritage intervention, management and dissemination but are veritable repositories of information about the building. Our main aim here is to experiment with these tools as part of a specific case study of the chapel of La Virgen de la Antigua in Seville Cathedral and find ways to facilitate the generation of all the possible relationships between the data – morphological, material, structural, historical, cultural, etc. – captured from and recorded about this building, and not only based on the materiality of its massive and precursory elements but also on all the elements associated with the immateriality of its spaces (traces, relationships, functionality, accommodation of furnishings, etc.). The scope of this paper is therefore to share a few reflections on the generation of an experimental model for its future use in various disciplines, from heritage management and conservation to intervention, investigation and dissemination.
