Does your firm use VR in construction – for those of you that aren’t familiar with the term – VR stands for virtual reality? Two week’s ago I had a conversation with someone in our industry about it’s applications and they were surprisingly optimistic about it. Myself – I’m a bit of a skeptic, but as Unsquare Life explains for us below – it has some real world applications, especially in the world of architecture.
This article is a guest post which comes to us from Unsquare Life
A drawing of shapes and volumes which gives the house a linear beauty, marked by the big windows which defines the lines of the different ambients.
The idea is to give, to the visitor, a full immersion walkthrough, outside and inside this Architecture, and “touch” and see all the parts and all the volumes that compose this mixed house.
The animations, the music (by Alessandro Fantin) and the paintings (by MJ2art), and the interactive parts, “raise” the visit to an emotional walk.
The project has been prepared for mobile and desktop PCs – also with VR.
The plan for the project is to give the visitors, a chance to visit the realized construction project even before it is finished. The visitors are potential clients and the goal is let them “live” the project and see all of the details (example being materials and furniture).
Here’s the video of the project:
The style and materials have been designed by an Architect – Alberto Galindo Muñoz – who I collaborated with. The inspiration came from the need to control the natural light; the shapes allow it to come inside the house deeply at every angle.
People are getting an opportunity to “live” the house. The first impact is always shocking because it looks like I teleported them into the construction! They than get confident with it, and, the first thing they try to do is to touch things and walk around; this is good because the next step is to listen to their judgement, not just for me, but also for the other figures that are involved in the construction of this project.
