summary Sound Space, an interactive virtual reality tool, allows architects and designers to simulate and visualize the acoustic implications of their building designs. By providing designers with the ability to pause, rewind and fast forward a sound wave within a virtual built environment, we empower them to let acoustics influence their design decisions. With a focus on simulation accuracy as well as user experience, we let the user interact with, explore, and curate their own experience while gaining an intuitive understanding of the acoustic implications of their design. Sound Space explores the opportunities that a linked BIM connection may bring within game engine based experiences, and looks at some of the tools we used to try to make that connection. Sound Space focuses on evaluating the acoustic performance of a space in an interactive and visual experience. For buildings such as symphony halls or theaters, acoustic engineers are a part of the design process from the beginning, but the majority of projects such as schools, hospitals, or museums might employ acoustic specialists only near the end, if at all. At this point it is often too late to make meaningful changes to account for the important acoustic characteristics that can make such spaces work better for students, patients, and visitors. Our goal was to create an environment that was visually interesting enough to immerse and retain users in the experience, and accurate enough to give useful results to the users for them to make informed choices about their design decisions.
