02/07/2024 – About the Topic
Dive into the immersive world of Spatial Computing and discover how it’s reshaping the future of architecture and construction. Whether you’re a seasoned professional in the field or just stepping into the realm of immersive technology, let’s get a better understanding of the profound impact of spatial computing. It’s no longer science fiction when imagining
architects walking through virtual buildings before they’re constructed, builders visualizing complex structures on-site with augmented reality. Join us as industry experts share compelling real-world examples, from things such as virtual design collaboration to on-site augmented reality assistance. Uncover how these technologies are revolutionizing architectural visualization, construction planning, and project execution. Let’s demystify the jargon and explore the exciting potential that spatial computing brings to architecture and construction.
Join us for the first stage program of The Next Evolution series of 2024, February 7th at 5:30pm at 1871 in person, 6:00pm at Virbela Open Campus, and 6:15pm for the YouTube Live Stream as we talk about Spatial Computing in Architecture and Construction.
