Co-founder & CTO
One of Harri’s earliest jobs was developing a multi-user VRML browser. He’s served many roles in the interim and obtained a PhD in Computer Science but his love of shared virtual worlds never went away. The rise of VR and its application to collaborative architecture naturally presents an irresistible challenge for him.
With 10+ years of experience in the architecture industry Johan brings extensive knowledge of design technologies to Arkio. As an architect and engineer Johan believes immersive technologies have the potential to redefine our design process and enhance the multidisciplinary joint effort to create better built environments.
