We've been involved with visual communications for Oxford Brookes University for so,me time now, creating images for planning and marketing along with a film to help get potential new students from around the world excited about the plans for the future of the site. The latest step was to create an AR app for the university for one of their latest designs: the Headington Campus Development Plan.
The App allows the user to view a 3D model of the design and explore how the building will look using their iOS smart devices. Additionally, with the click of a button, the roof of the building can be removed to see the inside of the scheme. An additional click will remove the 1st floor giving the viewer an overview of the building.
Without the 'faff' of cables, cumbersome headsets and powerful computers, AR apps such as this open up amazing possibilities for property developers, architects and agents in the explanation of their designs.
