This work discusses the relevance of architectural design towards the field of information visualization by showing historical and contemporary examples of built structures with encoded information. This overview should demonstrate that information visualization in three dimensional physical environments was already created throughout the history of architecture, even within different cultures. From these examples some design principles for spatial coding of information will be extracted that can be transferred to the field of information visualization. Additionally architectural principles are related to metaphors from different fields of knowledge.
