Mix Reality : AR, VR, MR
If architecture is the thoughtful making of spaces, then the more an architect can interact with those spaces in real-time, the more thoughtful the process can be. Every construction project is a unique, site-specific translation of a design that leaves little room for error. Misinterpretation of design data can lead to costly mistakes, quality issues, and schedule delays. Today’s architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry must improve communication methods and integrate workflows by embracing technological advancements.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions and 3D modeling capabilities have already enhanced information sharing and dynamic workflows in AEC, but the most forward-thinking AEC firms are leveraging technologies like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and the newest kid-on-the-block, Mixed Reality. Of the three, Mixed Reality for AEC is truly a match made in heaven.
