The purpose of this study was to explore the user experience of non-specialists viewing and navigating in an architectural native (Revit) BIM model in Virtual Reality (VR) with a head mounted display (HMD). The perceived sense of presence as well as the quality of vision and total VR experience was examined and also compared with standard computer screen display. The study shows that conveying architectural form and space to non-specialists can be done with reasonable good results with the use of present time real-time rendered BIM models in VR even if the HMD is not calibrated individually. The study also shows that development of VR hardware and real-time render software as well as the practical use must be further developed to fully utilize the VR potential.
