Describes the development of a computer‐based walkthrough system produced from video‐still images. The navigable simulator, Archiwalk, is designed to familiarize students in built environment disciplines with a range of building types and examples, providing an experiential learning environment. Users are able to manoeuvre around using on‐screen controls, encouraging an exploratory form of interaction. Reports on various stages of the system’s development, and includes some of the design issues which were addressed. Also describes a formal method for capturing and compiling images to enable teachers to compile their own walkthrough case studies; this is facilitated by the use of database creator software.
