In September I spoke at the AEC Tech Symposium. With Mostapha Roudsari, we discussed how some of the most recent web-based development projects at CORE studio – including VRX – are enabled by open-source initiatives and how these platforms are being used for better collaboration inside and outside Thornton Tomasetti.
This past year at Thornton Tomasetti’s CORE studio, I have been designing and developing VRX – a project to view Building Information Models in Virtual Reality. This web application allows the model creator to guide others in a shared virtual environment using the Google Cardboard. I just published a blog post about it, and you can read more about it here.
Next week, I’ll be teaching a workshop called Prototyping Experiential Futures at the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA). The 3-day session will be co-taught with Woods Bagot’s Director of Technical Innovation Shane Burger. See description below and sign up!
The field of Interaction Design has come to dominate our experience of the digital world. As our physical world increasingly takes on digital threads in our everyday experiences, the role of the architect needs to actively engage IxD for the built environment. We need to move from prototyping form to prototyping experience.
