AR Design Tools

Designing in augmented reality

PLP Labs’, with a team of in-house experts, explored AR & VR technology. These tools aid the design process and are useful for visualisation. For instance, digital tools enable more interactive consultation with teams and clients & new ways to design. Labs experimented with a variety of tools, from life-size 3D holographic on-site projection, holographic façade generators, to structural blueprint projecting in AR within the practice.

  • Augmented and virtual reality technologies and their uses in the design process
  • Live 3D holographic modelling with the design team, allowing everyone to adapt the model as though it were real
  • A sped up design process which negates the need for drawings, renders or hard-to-read models
  • Opens parametric modelling to people that can’t use complex software such as Grasshopper
