Our Executive Director of Design David Polzin, AIA, LEED AP and Digital Practice Director Jimmy Rotella will present, “The Rise of Multi-User Virtual Reality,” at Building Design + Construction’s (BD+C) Accelerate Live! conference May 10 in Chicago. Accelerate Live! is BD+C’s annual innovative forum featuring 22 presentation from business and tech leaders from the top AEC firms in the country.
Through their presentation, David and Jimmy will share early findings from our firm’s work with multi-user VR technology. When successfully leveraged, multi-user VR allows multiple people from around the world to all collaborate and design in the same virtual space together at the same time. These multi-user VR environments enable a true collaborative design where people can discuss, draw, scale, break sections apart, and advance design projects in real time. This allows enhanced communication and increased time for design exploration, ultimately leading to a stronger built environment.
