a case for virtual prototyping:

this is why architects should invest in virtual modeling.

for anyone that’s played Vice City, there are times where the simulated sunset / sunrise will induce glare during gameplay. events like this will work for studying design concepts and their effect on real environments.


if more users had the ability to experience an architectural model as a virtual avatar, then there would opportunities to make these kind of discoveries prior to build. regarding this concert hall, i’m sure gehry’s design intention will now be compromised by engineering fixes.

oh…and speaking of virtual environments, check this out!
