VR: Using Virtual Reality Technology in Architectural Design

November 13, 2019
4:15 PM - 8:00 PM

University of Massachusetts Club
One Beacon Street, 32nd Floor
Boston, MA

Matt Paquin
is a Design Technologist and the Visual Integration Lead at SMMA in Cambridge, MA. He has
a background in fine arts, professional architectural visualization, and teaching. Combining the efficiencies of cutting edge digital 3D model geometry with artistic expression makes Matt able to control software for the purpose of communicating design intent without being controlled by the software itself.

DESCRIPTION: The use of Virtual Reality (VR) in the architectural design process is growing and there have been a lot of advancements in the discipline. The presenters will guide the audience through some examples of projects where VR was used as part of the design process. Different platforms will be discussed and two live demos that a few volunteers can experience firsthand will be provided. The first demo will take a project from SketchUp into Enscape to export a VR file and the second demo will utilize Revit and Iris VR’s Prospect.
