Today SPINN Arkitekter hosted a lunch presentation with our old friend (and visualization legend) Kim Baumann Larsen. Equipped with two Samsung mobile phones and VR-Gear headsets, we were treated to a well-informed discussion of the state of VR Visualization in architecture and a hands-on demonstration of what cutting-edge architectural VR looks like in a mobile format. The results were impressive!
"Architecture has a significant potential to use this technology because good VR gives a feeling of togetherness (PRESENCE) and the ability to understand space and sizes in a way that can only be compared to being present in the finished building." - Kim Baumann Larsen
Judging from the scenes we witnessed today, we agree. SPINN looks forward to further experimentation and to seeing some SPINN Arkitekter projects in stereo VR!
