title Interactive Facade Detail Design Reviews with the VR Scope Box
source ACADIA 19:UBIQUITY AND AUTONOMY [Proceedings of the 39th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-578-59179-7] (The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, Austin, Texas 21-26 October, 2019) pp. 422-429
summary We present the development of the VR Scope Box as an example of the potential for Virtual Reality to enhance the design process as an interactive medium. The opportunities afforded designers by virtual environments should not be limited to simple immersive visualization. The VR scope box is shown to able to visualize details in 3-dimensional space at a 1:1 scale with accurate material representations. This visualization is not restricted to a single typical example detail, but rather allows for the dynamic exploration of the entire facade system. At the same time, the building exterior as a whole is also visible, to allow for a simultaneous understanding of the connections and the consequences of those details on the building as a whole. Additionally, we discuss the importance of user experience on the usability and adoption of new tools within architectural design reviews and the advantages of developing such tools in-house.
