Scope note for the class Empty Morphological Building Section – B4  Back

Scope note


This class comprises identifiable features that are physically attached to particular physical objects. Instances of B4 Empty Morphological Building Section are components of the functional units that form a built work.

Example of B4 are the empty spaces that are formed by their surrounding walls, floors and ceiling. Empty spaces are fundamental elements in modelling environments like BIM that need to have explicit space objects where the spaces are formed by the surrounding objects (Underwood et al. 2009). Instances of B4 are portions of the space resulting from the intentional disposition in the space of a set of Filled Morphological Building Sections. The void space must be intentionally obtained to serve a function for the building.
