BIM Igloos • 360 Degree Immersive BIM Collaboration

BIM Igloo is a 6m diameter cylinder providing completely immersive 360 degree visualization platform. To demonstrate the power of VR and the Cylinder in particular, a script that has been developed by B+R Architects was used to transfer the design team’s Revit files that is currently getting built on site, into the Unity gaming engine. Clients were then able to navigate around the perimeter of the building and also inside it using an Xbox games console controller – fully immersing themselves in the design. Traditional model reviewing tools do not encourage exploration of space, form or aesthetics and the human elements of a project.
