XR visualizations are changing the way that architects design and present buildings. In this talk, SHoP Architects present a case study of a new tower in Brooklyn, and how they used a spectrum of XR platforms to engage designers and clients at different stages within the design process. From mobile AR, to Microsoft's Hololens, to VR, they will discuss advantages and opportunities of the different systems, as well as lessons learned along the way and workflows developed to help a small team effectively utilize new technologies.


The audience will come away with an understanding of how XR is currently being used in architecture, and a vision for how it will continue to advance the field of design. They will also hear about strategies that a small team of people used to develop custom XR tools and experiences in the fast-paced environment of a design firm.

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in the use of XR in the architectural or other design professions. Companies or individuals looking to start or grow their own inhouse team of XR development.
