There's no doubt that augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will play big roles in the future of the architectural, engineering, and construction industry. Arup has been using a mix of these technologies through its evolution. We'll discuss the process and pitfalls of integrating various emerging technology advances-such as VR head-mounted displays; 3D reality scanning; AR glasses; and CAVE systems with infrastructure, lighting, way finding, and acoustic design-in order to capture and communicate our project plans. Project case studies, like the "1.8" exhibit at the Smithsonian Institute's Renwick Gallery and Tippet Rise Art Center in Montana, will explain the value of experiential design and collaboration that can lead to making more-informed design decisions.

Anthony Cortez is the Arup Visualization Leader in the Americas Region and has been working as a Senior Designer for Arup Lighting for over 18 years.Anthony has worked on numerous AEC projects, including the Fulton Center, YAS Marina Hotel and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens.He has received lighting awards from the International Associates of Lighting Designers and Illumination Engineering Society. In addition to visualization, he integrates with other disciplines to produce validated lighting studies, acoustic & pedestrian/vehicle simulations, as well as real-time simulations using cutting edge mixed reality.The major benefit of what he provides is to help clients accurately understand and visualize their projects in the development stage as well as generate excitement and wow factor.Anthony has presented at conferences like Augmented World Expo, ESRI UC ,AU and enjoys sharing his experience on the evolution of architectural visualization.
