The interactive graphical representation supports multiple design representations and their interactions. The representation consists of the spatial subsystem and the stylistic subsystem of a building to facilitate design and collaboration in 3D virtual worlds, for designers or computational design agents alike (Gu & Tsai, 2008). The interactive graphical representation has been applied for architectural design, demonstrating its effectiveness in addressing simple design tasks, such as building extensions and simplified architectural style transformations. This paper presents the application of the interactive graphical representation for architectural style study in 3D virtual words, through three complex cases of pavilions, designed by Fischer von Erlach.
