VR in Architecture

Unless you’re an architect, it’s pretty tough (if not impossible) to visualise architectural concepts when all you have are 2D floor plans, illustrations, animations, or scale models. Luckily, VR is changing all of that. In this meetup we have invited Johan Hanegraaf, Dreamlake and Zeno Koenigs to share their view on the rapidly changing landscape and present on a selection of their projects.

Johan Hanegraaf, Mecanoo architecten and indie developer of www.archispacevr.com, takes us through a brief history of architectural design tools, discussing how sketching, model making, ray-trace rendering, building information modelling, virtual reality and game technology have all affected architectural practice and how emerging tech will change the work and design process in the very near future.

Dreamlake is a company based in Utrecht which specialises in creating virtual reality content and platforms for business purposes. They have been developing VR technologies and applications since 2013 and have received an innovation prize from the Dutch Government. Below are two of the projects that will be presented by Dreamlake:

Zeno Koenigs is a communication designer working as a Creative at Digined, a creative/technical agency specialised in social media. He will be doing a short presentation on their latest project, a 18.000m2 office building in the harbour area of Amsterdam still in construction.

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
