VR for Architecture

I recently attended an introduction to virtual reality and its part in Architecture.

My entry into Architecture was pencil and paper on a drawing board, but things have really moved on.  Most of my work is still 2 dimensional CAD, but there numerous 3D applications available which really help to understand and explore spatial awareness.

VR takes this to the next level; The clarity of the graphics is amazing, layers add furniture, décor, time of day and weather.  From a sunny summers day to a heavy rain or snow shower, vehicles and people move around and interact with the scene that has been set.

Furthermore, by selecting an object in a room, thanks to BIM modelling, you can see specific details including price, suppliers and technical details.  For anybody considering a large scale project, this could be a great asset.
