title The Virtual Building Simulator: a Post-Parametric Spatial Planning Environment
source Proceedings of Construction Applications of Virtual Reality, Weimar, 2011
summary The described research of Fraunhofer IAO and AEDAS CDR examines the potential of post-parametric computational design together with immersive methods like Virtual Reality. The industrial approach of frontloading identifies the early design stage as crucial for all subsequent processes and the overall sustainability of future building projects. There VR together with innovative planning simulation methods allow to manage building models as complex systems for long-term planning reliability from construction to building operation. The Virtual Building Simulator represents a prototype of a design platform where the designer-user can immersive himself via VR into the interactive spatial formation process. The process synthesizes parametric constraints with design intent and algorithmic behavioural logics.
