A talk from the Life Track at AWE USA 2017 – the largest conference for AR+VR in Santa Clara, California May 31- June 2, 2017.
Matthew Vitti (TCA Architects): VR and Architecture
Virtual Reality technology is more applicable to the industry of architecture than almost all others. The job of an architect is the clear visual communication of data. This data relates to how the building is designed and built. A vital aspect of this data is not accessible without VR scale. Scale is one of the most vital aspects of architecture. By accessing scale throughout the design process we can access the feeling of the space and solve issues that may only be seen after construction when it is too late or costly to fix. VR not only allows us to feel the space but it also levels the playing field in terms of understanding space. Not everyone is trained to understand the drawings architect’s produce. VR allows users to see and understand the space as if they were standing there themselves.
These are revolutionary issues for our industry not just a simple progression of earlier ideas and concepts.
