Tips to Get Started on Your First Architecture Project using Virtual Reality Project

by Komal Trivedi 3D Animation Studio
You are walking through an enormous and elegant home with a neatly laid furniture setting and soft lights illuminating the entire space in front of you. Then you take out your VR goggles and continue with the discussion with the architects.

The scenarios like these are becoming more prominent in the world of architecture due to none other than virtual reality. The incorporation of virtual reality or VR along with Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality has enabled the architects to give new experiences to their clients for understanding the buildings or spaces before it has been actually built.

This makes it possible for the clients to not only see but also feel how their new home or office is going to be once it is built.

Owing to the rapid advancements in this technology, more and more architects are stepping into this field. For those who have been thinking of venturing into this vertical, we have compiled a few tips, which will help them in making their consideration a success-

1.    Understand that VR & AR Have Different Capabilities
The most common assumption which is completely wrong is that the VR and AR have the same capabilities. While both these technologies are similar when it comes to serving the purpose of giving a virtual appearance of a space, they both have different capabilities. With Virtual Reality, you get to have an immersive and full-headset experience while blocking off the outside world completely.

Depending upon the device you are using, you can even do a room-scale VR and actually walk through space. On the other hand, in AR the information is animated through a small device like a tablet or a mobile and on a real-world view. A trainer remotely teaching his acquaintance about a new design or technology is what AR will be used for.

2.    VR is a Rapidly Changing Technology
Although Virtual Reality has been into existence from decades, it has not been elastic and therefore has not advanced to the scale wherein its deployment in the applications has become a common phenomenon. However, with the advancements in the mobile technology, we saw an explosion in this technology in the past 2 years and that too on a level that this high-resolution imagery has been placed into everyone’s hands. Head-mounted displays such as Samsung Hear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, etc. have made VR more affordable for the people than earlier.

3.    VR Can be Used at Various Stages of Architectural Designing
One of the benefits of VR is that it can be applied at the different level of detail levels of the designing process. This means that an architect can implement it in the initial stages to get a slight idea of the spatial relationship & the massing with the help of 3D interior rendering services.

In addition to this, the architect can also get a hyperreal experience by adding features such as soft sunlight or the sound of birds chirping, to give a more realistic approach to the clients. This makes it easy for the clients to understand the design easily and gives them an exact idea of what output they will get in the end.

Well, these were some of the things that the architects need to consider before choosing VR for their next project. you can also take help of 3D architectural visualization companies like Blue Ribbon 3D, as they will help you in understanding the technology in a much better way.
