Abstract. This document aims to validate the workflow from a digital survey of a residential building of the early 900 century of historical value ready for future renovation to the transformation into a BIM model for its holographic fruition augmented by an automatically extraction of data and information contained within. Via Lulli is a low-cost residential district organized in courtyard blocks subject of future energy saving interventions; the research topic concerns the validation of the workflow from the 3D digital survey to the holographic visualization augmented with automatic extraction of information using the innovative Euclideon Hologram Table©.

The possibility of interrogating an informative 3D BIM model visualized in a 3D space in front of the operator and not simply through a desktop is a completely new field in research with many potentialities; in the specific case study the abundance of these heritage buildings in the city must be considered as a relevant data to organize their whole renovation. After the previous validation of transforming the 3D BIM model to hologram, analysing the file formats, technical performance and specifications, file dimensions manageable, the successive implementation has been focused on the automatism of extraction of the different useful information from the model. The possibility of interacting to query the model in holographic representation represents an extraordinary tool for managing BIM which opens new research; it has been reached through tests for interoperability among formats, necessity of transformation of the BIM model without losing information and accuracy, friendly fruition in the Euclideon Hologram Table©.
