Exploring state-of-the-art VR devices and systems for multi-scalar, collaborative design processes.

Test Wall CoE Inside

Virtual Reality (VR) Methodologies explores the potential for integrating state-of-the-art VR devices and systems into the architectural design process. Applications include first person visualization of architectural design proposals, interactivity with bioresponsive fa├žade systems,┬ánavigational techniques through urban energy scale analyses, and experimental immersive simulations with energy data. The IDVL supports exploration and testing of multiple combinations of VR and AR (augmented reality) for transformative, hybrid-reality design environments for interdisciplinary collaboration.
