Evangelist Speaks

Dear Readers,

The first time I heard about Architectural Evangelist, it sounded like a religious e-Zine. Then I thought again - an evangelist is really just someone who brings good news. Sure, I would love to tell anyone who is really interested about how Jesus Christ came to set us free from religion, but in the meantime it's not a bad idea to bring other good news as well. Here it's about ARCHITECTURE.

This issue deals with saving our historical and rich heritage buildings, saving our resources, saving energy, saving the planet, and even saving time and money in the process - in short, RENOVATION.

Here industry professionals share their ideas about the latest developments in laser scanning for capturing the accurate 3D measure of existing buildings, how the government directives, are recognising the value of BIM to keep a virtual record of historical buildings, and how BIM applied to the whole spectrum of renovation projects can bring a more holistic sensitivity to our built environment. We hope that this issue will help you to improve the existing renovation processes, showing that there are some better ways. Happy Reading!
