ARCH 1510 - Introduction to Virtual and Augmented Reality

Summer. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Satisfies departmental free elective credit for B.Arch. students. Satisfies the Visual Representation or “any other ARCH class” for the architecture minor. Cannot be applied toward B.Arch. Visual Representation concentration.


Augmented Reality is emerging as an important and exciting form of communication for architects and designers and those with an interest in visualizing the environment. In this course we will discuss technical aspects of how AR technologies work and how it has the potential to change the way architects and designers interact with their work and with each other. We will introduce students to immersive realities as a tool for both creating and experiencing digital spaces. Students will learn the basics of 3D modeling CAD software and explore strategies for using real-time rendering and game development to create experiences that adapt and react directly to the viewer.
