AbstractSurveying existing sites and structures is the starting point of most architecture projects. A site's physical dimensions, vegetation, traces of use, and prior constructions are incorporated in drawings as long as they are deemed relevant for the design and depending on the time available. However, what if that information can be retrieved accurately and comprehensively in a short amount of time without visiting the site? In our most recent architectural project, 3D laser scanning provided all this information through a measurable three-dimensional digital model of reality. We then designed upon it and used it as a basis for images, technical drawings, and videos for a house near Santiago de Chile, designed remotely from London using a 3D laser scan record of the site.
