summary Visually decoding and evaluating digital 3D models in proper scale on screen from within 3D modelling software can be quite difficult due to random zoom-factors, Field of View (FOV) and eye height. Motion and interactive bodily grounded examinations are helpful factors that can be enhanced with the use of Virtual Reality (VR). The purpose of this phenomenological study is to address these difficulties of perception of scale by introducing a Virtual Reality Head Mounted Display (HMD) as an exploration tool and outlining possible ways of utilising this tool in architectural teaching. To achieve the purpose findings of perception of scale and distance; level of abstraction; navigation; and simulator sickness will be discussed in relation to architectural investigation in VR. This will be based on the experiences and findings during two workshops with architecture students qualifying their conceptual designs with the VR HMD.
