Latest advancements in 3D architectural models that are changing the world of Architecture
- When an architect is working on a building design, his goal is to have his client understand and fully visualize the project from the word go. Augmented and Virtual Reality have become of great help to the architects in achieving this goal. Though these technologies are not very new, their application in architecture is taking shape now, and they are becoming a vital part of the architectural presentations.
- Virtual reality (VR) creates a virtual world that architects and clients can interact with while augmented reality (AR) is a blend of the real and the virtual world. While 3D renderings only allow designers and their customers to have an accurate FEEL of the building, VR allows them to walk through the building and see each detail.
- These tools will allow architects and designers to envision and virtually dwell in 3D spatial conditions at full-scale. According to an article by Casey Mahon, designers will not only be able to dwell in this virtual world, but they will also be able to design using natural hand and body motions. Therefore, they will now be able to use their hands in the act of creation, though digitally. Computer vision and gestural design tools that translate hand movements into design information will enable the gestural modeling.
- Augmented reality brings together the real world and artificial content. For instance, AR allows architects and clients to visualize the 3D architectural models of a new building integrated into a real building site with its actual size and environment. AR technology permits the information about the physical world around the architect to become interactive and digitally manipulable.
