Real-time visualization: defining a new futureTweet
While the future holds its challenges, we can overcome them with the right minds and tools.
The entire architectural ecosystem, from the client to the architect, to the engineer, to the contractor, and to the manufacturer, must build knowledge, leverage tools, and be leaders in change if we wish to help address issues such as climate change and urbanization.
Something that could help us in defeating the challenges of the future is Real-time visualization. Tools such as Enscape help us to recognize the constructibility of our concepts and give our ideas some validation. This has a high value for any kind of project as it can help the clients to fathom the results of their desires, standardize visualization, lower the feedback loop and help in the shaping of a new future.
Architectural Design: An Art Form
Architecture is a medium of art, and this form of art must be experienced both virtually and physically. There is a requirement for a lot of training, practice and talent in order to make beautiful yet affordable and functional buildings. In the current times, there is a lot of digital tools to aid architects with their work.
Making proper use of the modern tools will help in creating a better workflow, a building will have a lesser negative impact on its surroundings. Tools help in many ways such as showing the cloud-based cost estimates and tools for showing the design intent, even the aesthetics, to the otherwise untrained eye via real-time rendering.
The Client Challenge
A client dreams of a new building that is not only beautiful but also functional. Buildings are three dimensional but in traditionally proposed designs the designs were shown in two-dimensional ways; on paper, via Powerpoint, boards and sometimes with scaled physical models.
Engineers and Architects used to study these plans, but not every client had the ability to understand the design properly enough that they will be confident enough to know the end result of the construction properly.
Two-dimensional drawings of sections, floor plans or elevation were not only difficult to understand but also could not convey the whole idea of the designers. The introduction of modern tools helps to introduce the ideas in Three-dimensional models. The clients can now see all the details in 3D and can get an estimate how what the building will look like in real life.
Designing and presenting using today’s real-time rendering tools, including context, support the design team in making more informed decisions throughout the design process.
By using current day real-time rendering software, designers are able to review and check their designs at each and every step of their work. The 3D rendering for models also take just a few minutes and can also be edited within a few minutes as well. The new technology gives both the designers and clients uninterrupted access to the entire project, including its structure, systems and contents.
Decreasing the feedback loop
With the help of tools and real-time visualisation, it is easier for the designer to show the client his idealogy and designs.
Clients can now see understand designs more efficiently due to the 3D designs so the feedback time between the client and the architect also decreases.
