Digital Architectonic: The Use of Virtual Reality in The Architecture Industry

The world of architecture amazed us already with mockup designs and even building design that makes us think, how? With the rise of Virtual Reality, applications in architecture have received a whole new attention. The availability of VR makes it convenient and provides a realistic result of human labor like its application in businesses and other sectors. 

One of the challenges architects face when dealing with clients is to convince them that the design works. This escalates when the project gets bigger, meaning more parties will be involved, meaning more time will be wasted before the final design. Here is when VR becomes beneficial. As an immersive technology, VR could shift users to a fully immersive environment. Opening opportunities to virtually present rooms, floors, and building designs as a whole.  

The focus is on design, making revision and redesign more convenient. This will also allow the client to interact with the proposed design, such as closing and opening doors or windows, turning lights on and off, and even adjusting the furniture in the room. By modifying the features in the virtual reality environment, architects can also create natural scenery to add a more realistic experience. This can facilitate customer feedback and re-adjustment by the architect.

Storyboard VR and Fuzor are few of the VR products in architecture. Allowing architects, AEC professionals, artists and creators to modify and create prototypes via VR technology. Making it a powerpoint platform for VR. Fuzor also built a multiplayer feature making it possible for collaboration, hence simplicity for the architect and its clients. 

With the increasing use of VR in architecture, this will also lead to the possibilities in the future market, offering a more convenient and cheap solution for building designs. Even so with the excessive spread of smartphone devices, virtual reality applications can easily develop for usage onto client’s phones. This also means that by only using Google Cardboard, the cheaper alternative, clients can be provided with floor plans and diagrams. 

Has been said and stated on how virtual reality can raise efficiency and effectiveness in many sectors, just like how we previously described in architecture. Building a world to combine both the vision of the creator and imagination of the clients. We are anxious to discover and develop more innovations in virtual reality, so keep up with us in for more updates in immersive technology. (Putri Fortuna – News)
