Introduction

Kris and Petr have been visiting the B2B Hackathon in Brussels, as Kris wrote in his UploadVR article. There we recorded a series of episodes, and this one is about "How VR can democratize Architecture".

We sat down with Thomas Van Bouwel who presented to us the potential of VR for architecture, beyond a fancy showcasing tool. Tune in to here more!

Topics discussed:

Thomas Van Bouwel is a Belgian based VR developer and Architect. He is interested in VR for design collaboration & participation and is making an asymmetrical VR+PC game called Panoptic

Many of the VR projects in Architecture are focused on the final stages of design process, basically for selling a house to a client. Thomas sees the real potential in the early stages: when the main decisions need to be made. VR is so good for this, as it helps for non professionals to understand and grasp the concepts of architecture very intuitively. And this is what we talked mostly about.
