    AIASF Design Tech Meetup: How On-Site AR Helped to Present the Center for Architecture + Design Project

    Wednesday, November 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST

    In this collaborative case study, members of the project team for AIASF’s dramatic new home at the Center for Architecture + Design will share the story of their successful use of on-site AR. How was the full-size AR design model created from the architect’s digital design files? How was this model meshed with the existing interior space within the historic Hallidie Building? How was the model viewed? What was the outcome? What does this story tell about how AR can be used today to review and present architectural designs?



    Learning Objectives

    1. apply the learnings from this project to current work
    2. make AR models at a wide range of scales
    3. place AR models on or off site
    4. have a powerful tool to present projects
