The field of architecture can frequently be slow moving, most of the time it is commonly a situation of when it is not broke then don’t fix it. Using the advancement of computer power and software the has gradually allowed today’s 3D technology to flourish and build on CAD to go beyond the technical drawing process and provide construction personnel better information about a property development.
Since the development of 3D modelling some architects have attempted to modernise and adopt this latest practice, offering their customers fundamental 3D rendering of the structures to assist and get across design for their building creation. However the architects which do offer this particular service are few, and the things they offer when it comes to 3D CGI is low resolution and incredibly simplistic as it is exactly what their CAD software allows for.
The next phase
The next phase for architects to modernise is to go to the likes of a CGI studio, by permitting an experienced 3D CGI company to attempt the development of the 3D architectural visualisations is the best way of visualising the qualities and will help spend less and provide the customer a cleaned picture of what’s going to be produced. In addition the considerably greater level of quality of 3D rendering enables for design for CGI visualisations we create could be applied to marketing & advertising materials.
What to do next?
The next thing of modernisation that architects will begin to utilise is going to be virtual reality (VR). The 3D CGI world is moving increasingly more towards virtual reality and exploring the advantages of what VR can provide, both when it comes to communicating a design as well as advertising the home to potential investors or buyers. Architects haven’t been required to think about this side of the property world prior to this, but to utilise this latest process architects will help attract new customers and expand the variety of the projects.
Allowing architects to exhibit to their customers what they’ve produced, but not just view it in 2D, or perhaps 3D, but go through it via VR, to permit their customers to fully view the property prior to it being built and give approval on the look and feel of exactly what the architect has produced, scrutinise it and when needed give feedback therefore the architect could make changes.
