How to Solve the Biggest Problems in Architectural Design with VR

How to Solve the Problems in Architectural Design with VR

Virtual reality has become one of the key components in almost every architectural design project today. One of the biggest challenges for the current architectural community is to convince their clients of how the finished structure will look like. Therefore, VR applications are soon becoming an integral part of the design process as well as the client presentations.

Virtual reality technologies are used to effortlessly showcase realistic project images to the potential clients and stakeholders, making them approve your designs in no time. Virtual reality has vivid applications, and is posed to change the face of the existing architecture and design industry. Let us now discover how to solve the biggest problems in architectural design with VR.

How Can VR Help in Solving Some of the Biggest Problems in Architectural Design?

Virtual reality for architects is on the brink of changing the architecture industry completely. So, it is important that the architecture design companies need to embrace these technological advancements and implement it in the services they provide. Companies need to understand the uses of VR in architecture and design and implement it. There are several problems faced by architectural design companies which can be easily solved using virtual reality. Some of the applications of Virtual reality in architecture and design are listed here -

  1. Designing in 3D Space Around Them

    This is one of the major problems faced by architects and design engineers across the globe. Currently, architects are unable to design the structures by visualizing it around them.

    Solution - With virtual reality, this can be easily solved. VR software coupled with hand-held devices and headsets will enable architects to visualize their designs in the 3D space around them. The designs can be visualized by the architects and also can also be displayed to the client even before the structure is built.

  2. Staying Ahead of the Competition

    In today's fast-paced world, companies are finding it difficult to succeed in the fiercely competitive architecture market. In order to stay ahead of others, companies need to find creative ways and come up with unique selling points.

    Solution - With virtual reality applications, companies will be able to create a niche for themselves in this domain. Not many companies are using VR for their architectural design projects and hence this is the right time to begin leveraging VR.

  3. Avoiding Expensive Rework

    Manual methods of creating architectural designs can be tedious and cumbersome. It involves creating designs, visualizing it, and then carrying out rework if the designs do not come out as designed. Rework can be time-consuming, expensive, and simply delay the work.

    Solution - With virtual reality, you can actually visualize the designs right in your office and then make the necessary changes immediately. The rework process is considerably reduced by making use of the latest VR technologies and applications.

  4. Lowering Costs of Projects

    Creating designs on paper, building the structure, and then making the changes depending on client's requirement can be an expensive affair. Lowering costs in an architectural design project is of utmost importance and it is one of the most cumbersome tasks.

    Solution - With virtual reality, the costs of the project can be considerably reduced. It is a myth that virtual reality applications and devices cost a lot. It is certainly not true. Devices and applications for virtual reality are reasonably priced now and can be easily used to design your architectural projects.

  5. Simulating Scenarios

    During the design phase of huge projects like bus stations, airports, malls, etc. it can get difficult for architects to know how the structures will interact with the environment.

    Solution - With virtual reality in use you will be able to simulate the internal and external structures thoroughly, like how the lighting will affect the corridor, how the emergency exits will function, etc. Virtual reality can eliminate this problem by helping architects simulate real-life problems and find solutions to them.
