In this class, we'll look at how to make virtual reality (VR) a reality at your design firm-with a small hardware investment and some inspired team members. Starting with understanding the different possible solutions, we'll look at how to use the technology throughout all phases of design and construction. We'll also look at how good model management is critical to the success of the virtual environment. By the end of the class, my goal is to have you feeling better about deciding on a road map to implement VR at your practice.
- Understand how to utilize virtual reality for use in the design, documentation, and construction processes
- Learn how to identify aspects of good model management and how it leads to a better, faster, and more efficient virtual environment
- Learn how to create a plan for implementing emerging technologies into your practices
- Identify the direction of visualization best suited for your needs and the technology requirements that go along with it
Chris Kelusak is a highly motivated individual that has a real passion when it comes to technology in Architecture. Working at Taylor Design, a California-based design firm that utilizes a human centered design based approach to solve challenges in the healthcare market, gives him not only the opportunity to develop incredible models but allows him to be continuously looking at new ways to improve the process, increase performance or sometimes do things never seen before. With this mindset, he not only performs the regular duties of working on Architectural Design projects throughout all phases, but he is also heavily involved in research and development on multiple technology solutions including Virtual Reality, Visualization, Dynamo, Drones, Fabrication, Robotics and BIM process integration.Currently, working as a Job Captain and BIM Manager, Chris not only see’s possibilities for improvement on the project front, but prototype, develop and deploy solutions for the firm at a whole.
