Intuitive Design in Virtual Reality | Seminar – BSc./MSc.


The seminar will provide an introduction to a range of digital design technologies, in particular virtual reality, to use them to create complex small-scale architectures in existing buildings.

The existing context is measured to the millimetre using laser scans and used as a digital design environment. The architectural project itself will be developed with the help of virtual reality (VR) on a 1:1 scale. In doing so, we will use small component systems, such as the clamp building blocks made famous by the Lego company, to create high-resolution architectures. The Digital Grotesque projects by Benjamin Dillenburger and Michael Hansmeyer, for example, can provide inspiration here.

The design task is an interior design for a restaurant. The design should refer to the existing structures of the building and complement it with furniture, wall and ceiling elements, lighting, etc.

All the design technologies used, such as 3D point clouds, VR design and visualisation, have a low entry barrier and can be learned in class without any prior knowledge. Hardware for working with VR will be provided in the VR Lab and through mobile headsets.

The seminar will be held in English.
