As part of the 2017 Milan Fuorisalone the Milanese architecture studio HIT arcHITects presented a new way of experiencing virtual reality-based architecture.
During the event organized in collaboration with Extendo, an Italian company specializing in the design and production of interior design articles, the extensive crowd gathered in via Palermo was able to experiment the potential of virtual reality as adapted to the world of architecture live and in real time through use of HTC Vive digital workstations. These special tools, usually used in the wider context of videogames, allow you to “visit” demonstration settings and walk virtually through and around the architecture. Thanks to this technology, users and potential clients can see and literally experience the interior of a space even before it is built.
The added value of this technology made available by arcHITects for Extendo is its ability to move around in specific environments either sideways or vertically to discover the rooms and their furnishings, or move from one room of a house to another just by pressing the button of a remote control. The result is so realistic that perception is deceived and the virtual makes us look real … or perhaps even more so.
