What would have happened if some of the most influential architects in history had used virtual reality to visualize their famous projects?
Although it is hard to imagine because we only have photos, some sketches, and technical drawings, there is some exciting news: now it is possible to walk through
In the SketchUp Warehouse or Revit Gallery, you will find thousands of 3D models uploaded by users which allow us to download them, edit, add textures and export with our adjustments.
Besides, with SENTIO VR you can use the SketchUp or Revit plugins and upload directly your 3D models to our platform for visualizing in virtual reality using your Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, and Gear VR glasses.
After talking to some friendly architects from Sao Paulo, New York and Santiago, I have made a list of 5 emblematic projects that would be amazing to see in virtual reality. I hope you enjoy it!
Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright
Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1939, the Falling Water house is one of the most iconic housings ever built by the best American architect in all time.
Casa de Vidrio, Lina Bo Bardi
Considered as a classic of architecture, the Glass House designed by the Italo-Brazilian Lina Bo Bardi was built in 1951. Located in Sao Paulo, the house is known for its intense use of glasses that configures its facades thus the house´s name. Currently, the house belongs to the Lina Bo Bardi foundation.
Villa Savoye, Le Corbusier
For many people, one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, Le Corbusier
designed Villa Savoye in 1929. The residence is located outside of Paris and is known for the use of "pilotis", which would later become a stamp of the Swiss architect Nationalized French.
Bergisel Ski Jump, Zaha Hadid
One of the most important figures in the 20 th century is Zaha Hadid, the Anglo-Irakí, stood out by her conceptual and not common designs, drawing different kind shapes in the majority of her projects.
The Bergisel Ski Jump was re-built between 1999-2003 to host Ski competitions in Austria, and it was described by its creator like an "organic-hybrid" between a tower and a bridge.
Glass House, Philip Johnson
Inspired by the Farnsworth House of Mies van der Rohe, the Glass House by Philip Johnson, with its perfect proportion and simplicity, is considered one of the first brilliant projects more in modern architecture.
The virtual reality allows you to walk through architectural projects, easily and simply,
enhancing your creative process and presenting to clients.
