Architecture Course Holds Conference in Virtual Reality

Students in Tait Johnson’s ARCH 593: Design and Construction Futures held the School’s first conference in Virtual Reality on May 6th! Students designed two virtual conference rooms using Rhino modeling software, then imported their models into the Hubs platform by Mozilla.
Fifty-five live student avatars joined the conference space along with two guest speakers from architecture firms in Illinois. Most participants used the web interface, but several had VR headsets including the two visiting guests.
