ON THE RELATION OF SIMULATION IN FULL SCALE AND VIRTUAL REALITY
Full-Scale Modeling in the Age of Virtual Reality [6th EFA-Conference Proceedings]
In line with the conference title “Full-scale Modeling in the Age of Virtual Reality” the participants will particularly concern themselves with the relationship of physical 1:1 simulations and VR. If the assumption holds true that those creating architecture provide of a higher degree of affinity to physical than to virtual models and prototypes will be subject of discussions. Furthermore, the participants will devote some time to issues such as the integration of model-like ideas and built reality thus uncovering any such synergy-effects.
In times characterized by the growing “architectural criticism” to the same extent as by the helplessness of the anonymous user the communication process between contractors, planer and users gains in importance. If communication is successful will not only depend on the quality of the project but also on the means of conveyance, e.g. visualizing or model representation. Can planning evaluation be effectively supported by virtual reality (VR)?
