For several years now, CO has focused on facilitating more informed decision making with our clients through custom virtual reality (VR) experiences. As with every new technology, there were challenges to solve along the way. Learn how CO’s digital design and technology team created customized solutions for interactive virtual environments.
As architects, we strive to provide our clients with a clear and visually engaging way to understand the design of the both the exterior and interior of projects. Utilizing computer vision technology, we envisioned the story behind the architectural design interactively.
As we strive to enhance our work and enable the exploration of novel design solutions, the challenges presented by different projects can sometimes extend beyond the core capabilities of our authoring tools. Here is a look at some of the ways we are exploring a do-it-yourself approach to digital tool development.
Essential to the success of the contemporary medical school is its facility’s ability to adapt to changes in medical curriculum and pedagogy, and for the program spaces to support multiple functions. Innovative solutions to traditional medical education space planning will result in a building able to flex to various scaled activities in a single space. Designing for change will create a facility that is durable, enduring and sustainable, demonstrating a prudent use of an institution’s physical, financial and human resources.
Last March, Digital Experience Designer Nazli Tatar participated in the Creating Reality Hackathon at USC. Throughout four days of workshops and production, 400 participants had the opportunity to work with people in different disciplines from all over the world and learn from industry experts. 37 teams competed in various categories, with just 48 hours to create an app and submit the codes.
Contemporary research engages teams of researchers working together to solve complex problems. Today’s laboratory facilities bring different scientific disciplines under one roof to create opportunities for collaboration and cross-disciplinary discovery. Yet physical laboratory space requirements often vary greatly among the disciplines, resulting in unique challenges in laboratory planning and programming.
How are they going to build that? Project Architect Tanner Clapham and Director of Digital Design and Technology Nuri Miller take a closer look at translating complex geometry for construction in the field.
