AR & VR - Multiple Realities in Play

Updated: Dec 12, 2022

VR, AR, and MR as the Future of Environmental Rendering

Even the tools used, particularly headsets and goggles, are now more extensively available to the general population and are being offered for far less money than they originally did.

Because they resemble ways people move in the real world, VR and AR are intriguing because they let individuals explore the simulated environment naturally without making things difficult or complicated.

These interactive interfaces established a new design language that defies the laws of physics and allowing users to be present in the project, witnessing, hearing, and living its architecture, rather than taking weeks—and frequently months—to make physical models and representations of structures.

It is evident that we will seamlessly switch between realities, reuniting with distant acquaintances and commuting virtually; time and location will be reduced to abstract concepts.

Designing, adapting, and navigating between varied surroundings while cycling between what is real and what isn't have become instinctive to us.

Engineers, construction firms, real estate firms, and clients now have access to structural, mechanical, or electrical information that they previously lacked thanks to the introduction of technologies such as AR and VR, which radically change this way of communicating architectural information by moving to an immersive and fully 3D model.


Why are augmented reality and virtual reality essential to architecture?

Streamline procedures

Professionals may see how their designs will appear on an accurate model thanks to virtual reality, allowing alterations in conjunction to customers' requirements.

Equipment tracking

To ensure that each phase of the job is trouble-free, numerous types of equipment in every construction project are required to be thoroughly examined. With the aid of 3D elements that enable virtual exploration of each component, RM aids in monitoring the appropriate operation of each piece of equipment by replacing traditional manuals with documented instructions in actual surroundings and adapted to each scenario.

Enhanced security

In order to assure that employees are safeguarded throughout the course of the project, employee safety program is vital. Technology makes it possible to deliver remote support that instantly links expert with employees.

Thanks to helpful and applicable training that equips people in this area and prevents major issues, communication between both sides improves and the process is simplified in real-time.

Enhanced client interaction

Throughout the course of a project, communication between all parties is crucial. After all, it is designed with the end-user in mind, so assuring that all of their expectations are met from the beginning is crucial for the project's success.

A stronger connection between the architect and the client is achieved through remote support based on augmented or virtual reality, where 3D models of the projects can be discussed and changed to the needs of each case thanks to a comprehensive and authentic image.

Better direct sales

Studies show that viewing floor plans increases clicks by 52% and the sale of a property. These figures grow exponentially with augmented reality if we add the possibility of presenting it in real-time to a conventional floor layout. It streamlines the procedure, quickens the process, and maximizes profitability.

Unleashes vision

Although it is still in its beginning phases and has a miles to go, AR and VR allow for the implementation of more innovative and unique designs. Previously, it was more challenging to test out bold concepts because architects could not see if they would be successful. Now they have no restrictions on how they can express their creativity, test it out in actuality, and, after spending significantly less time, dump it if it doesn't work.


VR, AR, and MR technologies are transforming the industry in ways that could not have been imagined a decade ago, which makes it all the more exciting to think about how it will unfold in the coming years. What is certain is the huge opportunity that the architecture and construction industry has in front of them, both in the way they design and build in the physical world
