title Immersive visualisation of Building Information Models: Usage and future possibilities during design and construction
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 673-682
summary The design process of a building often involves many dif- ferent actors and people with different experiences, level of knowledge and ability to interpret information. The most common in- formation media in these processes are 2D-drawings, documents and 3D images of design. These media can be difficult to interpret and un- derstand and could cause communication difficulties and design er- rors. However, in this context, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual Reality (VR) have been shown to offer an efficient com- munication platform. In this paper we present and evaluate a portable immersive visualisation system that uses the BIMs directly from the design tools. The system is validated in a real construction project, where the different disciplines in the design process used the system. The result was collected through interviews and observation during usage of the system. All the participants expressed that this type of visual interface helped them to get another level of understanding and perception of space, which lead to better decision-making process and resolving of design issues.
