    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2012)

    London, UK, 10 - 12 July 2012


    Stefan Zedlacher


    This paper summarizes the use of QR codes in everyday architecture and urban environments. Moreover it examines the aesthetic value of these patterns for architectural use and introduces a project that adopts these codes for a spatial orientation and information system. The project combines the artistic and architectural use of QR codes, establishes connections between virtual and real space and uses CAAD/CAM methods to produce QR codes with a sense of beauty. Is it possible to use QR codes as an offline and online information system and improve with it the inherent information of places in a building? Could we also insert architectural beauty in these codes?
