Before the pandemic, an architect’s day would likely have included in-person meetings in which renderings, animations, plans, and sections were shared to review building designs. These meetings might have involved walking clients through the building in VR, or watching a screen while a designer navigated around the architectural model.
Neither of these options to review designs is perfect. Clients can sometimes feel uncomfortable in VR headsets, and having a designer run through a model means clients do not have full freedom to explore the design themselves.
Then there’s the fact that meeting rooms are rarely kitted out with the necessary high-powered computers to provide a good experience for these reviews, whether at the client’s office or the architect’s.
During the pandemic, design reviews didn’t get much better. Now, architects were forced to contend with annoyances such as lagging interactivity on shared Zoom screens.
A feature released in the latest version of Twinmotion has the potential to turn these less-than-ideal review processes on their head—and not just for the pandemic era, but going forward into ‘business-as-usual’ times as well.
