VR+ARCH: workflows in past, present and futuren – NXT BLD London, June 2019
Virtual Reality at Herzog & de Meuron – first used for serious project purposes in 2015. Nowadays, reaching more and more users, VR hardware and software is evolving rapidly, constantly forcing us to rework our workflows and approaches. We are experiencing a full spectrum of curses and blessings that VR brings upon architects and their clients. In this talk, we’ll focus on evolution of VR workflows and how VR can provide additional value to architect’s everyday work. Used both for design development and client presentations, VR provides an unmatched platform for communicating architectural design. This will be a journey through time, different requirements and presentation flavors, various techniques and technologies.
