Virtual Reality in Architectural Design

Your live link from BIM

Modern and innovative architects always try to add more value for clients. Virtual Reality is their the key for more immerse and interactive presentations. How else can customers perceive their projects up close, feel changes in spatial planning immediately and walk through projects themselves?

Even though Virtual Reality has been around for some years, it was video gaming that pushed it as a mainstream option. Notable firms such as KPF, Foster + Partners, ARUP, LHB, and Hassell have chosen virtual reality with the Enscape plugin to optimize their workflow and presentations. 83% of the Top100 architectural firms are using Enscape for Real-Time Rendering and virtual reality.
