The main purpose of this paper is a proposal for restoration support system of historical buildings using virtual environments. Trend has developed to restore historical Japanese buildings such as theaters as symbols of town renovation. However, the restoration of such buildings commonly encounters many difficulties such as a lack of documents, and different construction materials and structures between the old era and the present. Virtual images of a restored building should be a great help in evaluating and discussing various restoration plans. We have constructed a restoration support system for historical buildings, using virtual environments to help the design plan for indoor restoration. CAD data based on actual measurements of an old theater, Tsurukawaza in Kawagoe, were employed to construct the 3D model for the system, which ensures reproduction of the interior details of the theater. The experimental results show the effectiveness of the support system.
