Course description

This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

The burgeoning Virtual and Augmented Reality technology is changing the design, visualization, and communication process in architecture. In this course, we will explore Virtual Reality as a tool for both spatial design and immersive representation through hands-on design projects. Students will try out Virtual Reality applications, grasp technical knowledge about AR/VR, learn how architectural design is taking advantage of it, and practice implementing virtual experiences within game engines. By the end of the course, students will perform spatial studies and generate a spatial design with the help of VR technology, and will create an application to present the design in VR space.

This course may be counted as a free department elective toward the B.Arch degree. It may also be used to satisfy a requirement for the architecture minor.
