Abstract

Communication during the design process has a substantial role because; it exchanges messages and conveys ideas to people with different skills and interests. Also, the development of high quality 3D modelling, photo rendering and VR software has shifted the way we communicate architecture, from a conventional one to a digital format and so, provided us with another way for the communication of information, the visualisation of processes and the creative expression of ideas. This paper investigates the impact that Immersive Virtual Reality technology can have on visualisation of a design review scenario in construction, which was developed during the course of the European CoSpaces project and the potential of such technologies to alter the way enterprises work.
