Our first Thursday back as a studio and a first for Broadcast Industries… a virtual site tour! After spending an hour in a group seminar discussing our site at length, we dived straight into the world of virtual reality and explored the 3D site model using VR headsets.
This workshop not only reminded the studio of the scale of our site for this year long project, but enabled discussions to take place concerning structure, materiality, volumes, programmatic connections and thresholds. We will be using this technology throughout the term during seminars and tutorials to explore not only existing conditions, but student proposals and interventions during the design development phase.
It was a fun day of exploration and opened up the idea of future possibilities surrounding communication and representation of spatial ideas. This won’t be the last time Broadcast Industries experiments with technology…. watch this space!
