What is possible? Where is the world going with respect to Architecture and Technology?. Recent trends continue to show increased interests in improved capabilities of Building Information Modelling with promising technologies. Compare to existing approaches of interaction with information inside Architectural Projects rooted in BIM which is limited to 2-D, Virtual Reality offers a new 3-D and 4-D approach to offering even more with presence and interaction. Leveraging on these technologies, decision making has never been easier and faster overall leading to time and cost savings alongside knowledge retention.

Hassan will be showcasing possible usage for Virtual Reality as an extensive tool for scaling Building Information Modeling capabilities for AEC industry professionals. Gamification is a major technique for improving how we interact with building projects virtually and there are best practices to achieve the most engaging and rewarding interactions with BIM data. In this session, he will equally highlight how game elements can be embedded to increase motivation while learning about a building; a strategic way to improve the quality of Architectural education in design institutions. To help anyone stay ahead of the learning curve, this session has been designed to help a wide range of professionals in the AEC industry.
