Virtual reality in building and design world is what is worth evaluating. I feel industries and individuals are going to be obsessed with virtual reality technology more than we can envisage. This is because, soon, people will be addicted to virtual reality than heroine.
For about five years now, virtual reality programs for architecture has been the story in town. Although we have heard of the future of virtual reality before, we are still surprised about how fast the field is developing. landscaping
For you who don’t know what virtual reality is; virtual reality is a technology used in describing a 3D computer created environment that can be both explored and interacted with. It is just not about visual display of things rather, it is about what you can relate with effectively (immersion and interactivity).
In the past, most construction and design industries, there has been the problem of convincing what the final execution of a project would be. There is a considerable need to show a dimensions (2D or 3D) of the structures, hence virtual reality came in.
Of course, “seeing is believing”. This is an approach taken by architectural companies. Since, the actual structure isn’t in place yet, at least, clients can explore what they want in the virtual world.
In architecture, virtual reality makes use of floor plans, 3D rendering and structural models to integrate clients into the virtual world of designs. Virtual reality transfer clients/users to a complete 3D environment to explore a virtual representation of the inside and outside of a building structure.
Now, you would want to ask how possible virtual reality can achieve architectural goals for design industries.
Shaping out and Designing of your ideas: with virtual reality, architects can have a dimensional visualization of structures. With that, they can explore, push thresholds and also experiment without incurring cost while saving time as well.
Virtual reality aids architectural industry in avoiding incessant revision of models: a well-built design into virtual reality is efficient to immerse clients into virtual representation of the building intended. And even if there is need to adjust any part of the design, other than rebuilding from scratch, virtual design is there is easily adjust and to allow client explore the amended environment. Virtual reality is detailed and direct in experience. So, aside quick and easy amendment of architectural designs, placing a client in such detailed virtual environment makes revision and feedbacks to be direct. As a client, you can clearly see where and what you want as part of the design you are exploring and give direct feedback.
Replication of real world circumstances: this is another thing about virtual reality architectural design. Client will be able to navigate the virtual structure. It is said to have proven useful using computer models. Virtual reality enables architects to understand the safety of designs by allowing clients to explore real life scenarios while exploring their designs.
