Although computer generated architectural visualisation is commonplace today, it may pale in comparison to what the future holds in this field very soon. As the arrival of colour and 3D cinema opened up new realms for movie goers in the 1940’s and 50’s, Virtual Reality (VR) is set to open up new frontiers within the field of architectural rendering, in this decade.
Conventional property CGI will be the mainstay of 3D rendering for many years to come, however recent technical advances have seen the advent of property base VR. Many architectural firms are starting to use VR within their design processes. VR gives architects a competitive advantage by shorten the design process and allowing them to wow their clients, with a visceral and totally enveloping visual experience.
Whether it’s via the use of a hand held device, (iPad or iPhone) or via a VR headset Oculus Rift (pictured above) or Daydream View, virtual reality gives the client a new view of their future house or apartment. He or she is immersed into a 3D world depicting a future lounge, kitchen or dining area. This type of visualisation offers a greater understanding of space, colour and form. Clients or customers will be able to assess whether a particular table or chair suits the new environment or whether the walls should be slightly lighter or darker. In the near future, as VR headsets become cheaper and more abundant, people will be able to click online links to view true 3D interior or exterior images at will. This will allow customers to view many future properties, with greater insight, without leaving their lounge room.
