Chromatrope is an architectonic device developed from the visuality of Google Street View cameras. Fasmatrope, Zoetrope, Panoptic and Panorama among others, are studied as architectonic experiments from the 20th century where visuality, ocular range and eye angles directly configure the design in terms shape and spacial composition.

Chromatrope is conceived as an architectural prototype of the visuality of the 21st century.It is an inverted Zoetrope that aims to understand contemporary architectonic image through digital tools such as 360º photography. The digital landscape condenses inside, wich builds the exterior illusion, becoming a virtual and modificable construction.
