Augmented Reality: The Merger between Digital and Real 3D Architectural Space



Architecture is perceived as its occupants travel through its spaces physically, and the experience of doing so can mean traveling within rather static or fixed architectural features and elements. However, there is a more dynamic opportunity for architecture to be more personalized for occupant need — and that means the merger of augmented reality with architecture.

The Harvard Graduate School of Design student, Greg Tran, has recently created a thesis project video presentation which simulates what might happen as augmented reality unites with architectural space. In the presentation, you can see how architecture instantly becomes more dynamic, where it can morph to accommodate changing needs and perspectives which an occupant may have. The following is Greg Tran’s thesis video presentation:

I present the work of Greg Tran within this article to show you how architectural design experience can be further enhanced. By merging augmented reality with 3D environments, occupants can benefit from a wide range of newfound functionality within their buildings. The occupant to architecture connection would be redefined as augmented reality becomes part of 3D space.

Thus, the digital combined with the real can create new kinds of spaces that communicate with occupants in new ways. Really, the possibilities of what such spaces can do is endless.
