Integrating BIM and augmented reality for interactive architectural visualisation
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose - The purpose of this research is to investigate a new approach with its supporting building information modelling (BIM) augmented reality (AR) tool to enhance architectural visualisation in building life cycle. Traditional approaches to visualise architectural design concentrate on static pictures or three-dimensional (3D) scale models which cause problems, such as expensive design evolution, lack of stakeholders' communication and limited reusability. The 3D animated fly-throughs still occur on a computer screen in two-dimensions and seem cold and mechanical, unless done with advanced production software.
