This paper presents a paradigm for the generation of, camera placements for architectural virtual environments as a method of enhancing the user's experience and as a way of facilitating file understanding of architectural designs. This paper reports on an initial prototype of a real-time cinematic control camera engine which enables the creation of architectural walkthroughs with a narrative structure. Currently, there is neither software nor a Structured approach which facilitates this in architectural visualisations. The paper discusses the potential of our approach; analyses the technical and application domain challenges; examines its Current limitations using well known architectural design concepts such as rhythm.
