New Virtual Reality for Architectural Investigations
Visually decoding and evaluating digital 3D models in proper scale on screen from within 3D modelling software can be quite difficult due to random zoom-factors, Field of View (FOV) and eye height. Motion and interactive bodily grounded examinations are helpful factors that can be enhanced with the use of Virtual Reality (VR). The purpose of this phenomenological study is to address these difficulties of perception of scale by introducing a Virtual Reality Head Mounted Display (HMD) as an explor
