Entitled ”Drawn to the Future”, the Building Centre’s latest exhibition explores how innovations in technology are changing the way architectural ideas are communicated.
The public exhibition aims to showcase how innovative technologies are used to visualise construction projects. It includes augmented and virtual reality demonstrations, aerial animation and planning tools alongside "sci-fi" drawings.
A highlight of the show, which looks to demonstrate how “gamification” will influence architecture and planning, is a virtual reality Urban Roller coaster designed by the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA).
Built using Autodesk 3ds MAX and ghostTown Lite, riders of the roller coaster will experience the ride through an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
