Successful design solutions require collaboration with expert end users to clarify needs and evaluate design options. The recent emergence of virtual reality (VR) applications for architecture has the potential to enhance collaboration by allowing users to more easily visualize and interact (virtually) with a proposed design or alternate solutions. This presentation first examines available VR tools and assessments given varying user group dynamics. The second section focuses on an observational research study that compares traditional and VR supported user group work sessions from both a designer as well as user perspective..
- Make informed decisions on the type of virtual reality tool and its incorporation into current practice
- Evaluate current practices for meaningful opportunities to implement virtual reality
- Identify the impact and value of virtual reality on the design process from both user and designer perspective
- Anticipate advantages and challenges associated with incorporation of virtual reality into current practices
