Angel Say, CEO of InsiteVR, a company he co-founded, specializing in the creation of virtual reality software for the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, discusses the current and future state of virtual reality in the architecture and design industry.
There are two main benefits of using virtual reality (VR) in the architecture and design field: winning more business and improving the efficiency of the current state of business.
Change management, a concept that IA often uses in its projects, allows designers and clients to visualize a space before it’s a reality.
Augmented reality (AR) also provides designers and clients with a preview of what spaces could look like by overlaying information and design concepts on an image or floor plan of a current space.
The future of VR is heading toward standalone devices like the Oculus Go, which eliminate the need of using multiple devices like computers and phones to utilize VR technology.
