Exploring the Role of Historic Building Information Modeling for Heritage Conservation in Pakistan: Case of Chauburji Lahore
The research involves application of modern technologies for digital documentation, management and monitoring of built heritage in Pakistan for sustainable developments, giving respect to the authenticity and integrity to the cultural landscapes. The purpose of paper is to evaluate impacts of virtual methods to traditional and conventional styles of conservation techniques. The core objective is to setup an innovative approach to generate a platform to be shared across the country to safeguard the built heritage. Chauburji, a monumental gateway to a large Mughal garden, built in 1646 C.E. during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan, has been selected as a case study, being one of the initial monuments digitally documented and characterizes the implementation of integrated building design processes and virtual 3D Models in conservation practices. In short, digital methods of assessment, documentation, data recording, management and monitoring can provide more realistic visualization for the future fabric of the cities.
