Possibilities of Virtual Reality in Interior Designing and Architecture By zubda sajda | jan22, 2019 |
Virtual reality is the new emerging technology of the town. Previously virtual reality was just a technology for video games, leisure and entertainment but within the past few years, Virtual Reality (VR) has evolved from a gaming experience to a valuable tool and is rapidly developing and we hope it will become a great tool in the field of Architecture and Interior design. The goal of the article is to explain about the possibilities and aspects of virtual reality in field of architecture and design.
What is Virtual Reality (VR)? Virtual reality is a computer simulated environment, accessed through stereoscopic goggles that include a variety of different tracking mechanisms that track the viewer’s movement in physical space, and matches those movements within the simulated 3D environment. Headsets display a stereoscopic image, viewed through built-in lenses that creates the illusion of looking out into a space. 3D renderings of the environment are captured in ‘real-time’ – which means the computer is processing and presenting a new rendering of the scene 60 to 120 times per second. This provides the viewer with a very realistic sense of what it would be like to actually inhabit the simulated environment, which is what makes it such a powerful opportunity for architectural visualization.

VR for Architect and Interior Designers Why it’s needed? The best answer for this question is ‘technology makes life easier’. Architects and interior designers often have a tough time making their designs intelligible to their clients. we have 3D software’s but still it’s not enough sometime to make understand our clients the design, but visualizing the design on 1:1 scale can make it easy to understand and VR is the tool for it, that’s why it’s needed.
Virtual reality improves the industry as is it allows professionals the ability to make changes, tweaks and adjustments before construction has been initiated. This has the potential to save costly mistakes or avoid them all together. The virtual reality technology allows its users to see their work in real space and time. Seeing the impact of design decisions in real time can assist with selecting the right sizes, materials and form immediately. For building owners, VR provides a highly effective means of visualizing, marketing and selling an architectural project that consistently achieves significant return on the investment. We can ensure that the building we create are perfectly suited to their intended purpose.
Conclusion VR is gradually becoming an indispensable part of architecture, engineering, interior designing and construction industries. All you need to do is put on your VR headset and foresee things before even construction starts. The implications are going to be amazing because the way we understand and visualise architectural concepts are about to change. The ability to intricately examine the prototype and explore possibilities in virtual space will definitely lead to better and targeted buildings. With rapidly evolving technology, the hardware and software are continually becoming more sophisticated and powerful, providing better quality and realism to a visual design. In addition, VR technologies have become less expensive, making them more accessible to smaller architecture and design firms. While it is hard to determine where VR technology will be in the next three or more years, there is every indication that virtual reality will likely be a much more interactive and collaborative experience than it currently is.
