Knowledge in Images – Information Design Today
ZhdK Museum für Gestaltung
In the context of a six month exhibition for the Museum für Gestaltung at the University of the Arts ZhdK in Zurich in 2019-2020 we showed a VR application of a Japanese Garden in Kyoto. The model was created in collaboration with the ETH Zürich and the Kyoto Institute of Technology for an ongoing joint research and teaching program on site in Kyoto. Staring from the traditional japanese Engawa the visitors were able move freely in the garden through VR glasses and a headset. The exhibition space resembled the size of the Japanese pocket garden which therefore could be discovered in all it's detail.
Everyday Spaces Zurich Main Station
13th Architecture Biennale Sao Paulo
For the 12th Architectural Biennale in Sao Paulo we prepared a fresh insight in Zurichs Every Day spaces.The sectional model of Zurichs Mainstation shows the interconnection of spaces and infrastructure below the city's surface. More Animations of the modelled Mainstation including 360 degree videos were produced for clients like the SBB real estate or the Museum für Gestaltung and exhibited in the latter between 2019-2020.
Deconstruction of a Pavillion
Documentation of the Saffa Pavillion by Berta Rahm
During the deconstruction of the Saffa Pavillon by Berta Rahm for conservational purposes the different construction layers were scanned and combined in one model. This model is the basis for conservational drawings as well as the aim to reconstruct the pavilion in a different location. Interactive models of the project can be found on our Sketchfab account. The project was conducted in collaboration with and financed by the ProSaffa1958-Pavillon Verein and the Cantonal Department of Monument Preservation Zurich.
Cover Art for Architectural Magazin
Werk, bauen und wohnen Cover 2021
SCANVISION was invited to create the Cover Art for the Swiss Architectural Magazin werk, bauen und wohnen in 2021. During one year cover images and animations are created to support the theme of the issue both in print and online. To show the visual potential of pointcloud modelling for Architecture, Landscape Architecture or Visualizations to a broader audience. More background information about the individual locations can be found on our instagram account @scanvision.ch.
Kosmos Emma Kunz
Visualization of the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the displayed Exhibition
The Exhibition Kosmos Emma Kunz at the Aargauer Kunsthaus was scanned by 62 Scanpositions and mulitiple photogrammetries. A Series of 24 Renders were created to become part of the exhibition catalogue published by Scheidegger & Spiess. Not only could the exhibited art be digitally displayed through the pointcloud visualizations, but it became also possible to represent spacial possibilities of the museum in a new way. In Addition to the printed renders animated trailers were produced to advertise and promote the exhbition on the web and through digital billboards nationwide.
1:1 Scan to Print Replica
Modeling an alpine rock for On Running's flagship store in New York City
For the Swiss shoe manufacturer On Running, we modelled a rock in the alpine Maloja landscape with the aim of printing a 1:1 replica. The result has ever since been on display in the company's new showroom in New York City, bringing a piece of the Swiss mountains to Manhattan. Interact with the rock yourself on our sketchfab acount.
Founded in January 2018, the brilliance of SCANVISION’s work is based on many years of experience with point clouds at the Chair of Landscape Architecture Christophe Girot at ETH Zurich coupled with strong skills in conceptual, spatial and cinematic thinking. The boundaries of surveying and representation are constantly being explored and new ways of conveying spatial information are being developed. The scope of possibilities is constantly being expanded through new surveying methods, workflows and the development of sensor-based interfaces.
Our work includes the surveying, documentation and visualisation of art objects, complex urban situations, large-scale landscapes, underground infrastructures and many more. With the help of surveying methods, such as 3D laser scanners, spaces are captured efficiently and in high detail. Digital models are made accessible through a wide variety of representations adapted to specific needs.
The media-effective reproduction techniques range from high-resolution films to VR and AR applications to interactive programs and convey a spatial experience to the viewer. We show the relationship of places, infrastructures, objects and spaces in a new way.
Matthias Vollmer is an architect (MSc ETH Arch) with a film education from the ZHdK (BA Film). His specialization in audiovisual media includes techniques from analog photography, film work to laser scanning technology. The beauty of his work comes from the accuracy on which he bases his observation: Systematically, he refines the models as well as the threedimensional paths of the virtual camera, constantly exploring the relationship of space and time in four dimensions.

Johannes Rebsamen is an architect (MSc ETH Arch) with a further education in geoinformation systems (CAS ETH SIS). The continuous work with visual media and an intensive examination of questions of representation and installation have sharpened his eye for the specific needs and requirements of content and technology. Through his strong conceptual thinking and his persistent approach, particularly effective media work is created.

Dennis Häusler is an architect (MSc ETH Arch) and joined the team after he finished his studies. His technical abilities and unfailing curiosity help to produce a new and aesthetic way to look on data while keeping compositional aspects in mind. Staying relaxed while plunging trough vast amounts of data allow to cope with large scales and a variety of data.
