This paper presents a project and considers the possibilities of using virtual reality in architectural design processes. The main goal of the project is to develop a process for collaborative design of laboratory layouts using VR (Cave-technology) as a tool integrated into the concepts of process architecture. The project has been carried out in co-operation with the Chemical Department at Lund Institute of Technology/Lund University. It is a "real" project integrated in the University's…

A Real Time 3 D Environment for Collaborative Design
An extremely “easy to use” digital modelling tool called “ForeSite Designer” that can promote dialogue and collaborative design work among the participants and it is found that it is important how the virtual environment and its components are visually designed in order to support the dialogue and Collaborative design work.
Interactive Tools for Collaborative Architectural Design
This research is focusing on integrating visualization technology in conceptual design and scenario building by application of digital tools, and has developed a working prototype for an interactive design tool.
Partner Engaged Design New Challenges For Workplace Design
The spatial organization of the workplace affects the work going on there. The technology used, changes the work practice. This paper describes a design process where different aspects of workplace
Evaluating the use of virtual reality as a tool for briefing clients in architecture
The results show that VR technology is highly effective as a tool for presenting architectural design, appropriately conveying the spatial dimensions, contextual information and realism of the architectural design to the clients.
Investigation of the contribution of virtual reality to architectural education
This study mainly examines the contribution of the virtual reality environment to architectural education. The primary aim of the study was to investigate the theoretical possibilities of VR
Participatory inquiry – Collaborative Design
This dissertation focuses on design sessions in which users and stakeholders participate. It demonstrates how material from field studies can be used in exploratory design sessions. The emphasis is
Exploring the Use of Virtual Environments in an Industrial Site Design Process
This paper investigates whether exploring a 3D model of a factory site can identify design problems related to human perception, such as exposing users to heights without sufficient protection, and identifies that HMD provides the most immersive experience.
Fashion inspiration and technology: virtual reality in an experimental apparel design classroom
ABSTRACT This study aimed to understand how apparel design students perceived virtual reality (VR) technology as a source of inspiration for garment design. Students interacted with VR technology as


A critique of virtual reality in the architectural design process
The role of VR in schematic design is described, through design development to presentation and evaluation, and there are some comments on the effects of VR on detailed design.
Virtual Reality and Education
It is argued that education is a field that requires the students to understand complex data, particularly in the study of science and VR makes that task easier and the requirement of learning abstract concepts in order to understand data is dramatically reduced.
Designing as reflective conversation with the materials of a design situation
What are the prospects for applying the methods of Artificial Intelligence to architectural designers' knowing-in-action? David Marr (Marr, 1982) has advanced the idea of a computational theory of
