VIRTUAL REALITIES OF W.I.N.D VROW
Spatial designers have a responsibility to provide humans with healthy and comfortable environments. Counter-intuitively, human wellness depends less on the geometries we design, and more on the ‘voids’ in between: the invisible fluid that surrounds us, our nitrogen and oxygen rich air and moisture.
Utilising the latest Virtual Reality software, the students explored 3D visualisation techniques through design data extracted from physical wind phenomena to communicate fluidic microclimates. They learned how to reflect on the influencing factors of wind and material interactions, to take the viewer on a journey through the majestic wonders of wind and air and remind us of its effect.
