Can VR be used to enhance the traditional charrette method?

Architect and AEC Technology Consultant, Richard-Allen Foster, AIA thinks the answer is YES. He and Matthew Kendall, Housing Product Owner at TestFit joined us live on February 3rd to explore how Arkio and TestFit can reshape the way architects and designers collaborate and communicate with clients and the public.

Experience a more interactive and immersive charrette process that can ultimately increase fun, engagement, trust, and confidence in the process and the solutions.

During the live discussion we saw how the already collaborative nature of a charrette sketch session can be enhanced with Arkio’s multi-platform tools and integrated with the parametric planning capabilities of TestFit for rapid iterations, robust data, and real-time visualizations.
