Imagined-reality visuals are intended to excite and invigorate the viewer. They are impressions of a place or space created by the architect, and as such the use of colour and the creation of a certain sense of drama are important considerations. The layout of a visual element must connect strongly to the content of the image, for example, there may be pictures of activities associated with the proposed architecture that can be included to unite the presentation and the underlying concept. These visuals may form the centrepiece to a series of measured drawings or create a theme for the presentation across a range of laid-out pages.
The concept is further explained with some explanatory text and diagrams, which are presented as a narrative along the base of the drawing.
The perspective drawings convey a three-dimensional impression of the scheme and computer generated images of the site provide a sense of realism.
