Abstract

This paper presents the establishment and refinement of a visualisation workflow based on initial learnings from introducing mobile Virtual Reality (VR) as representational medium for visualising and visually evaluating architectural
lighting concepts using rendered 360° panoramas. Four student projects are
described, each with a different aim and approach towards visualising
architectural light in space: Two projects aiming at conveying reality with
physically based lighting simulations and two projects with an artistic approach
to conveying light impressions. The 360° panoramas were used at low resolution
during the design process to qualify the projects, and the final panoramas were
presented with great success as a supplement to visualisations, diagrams,
technical drawings and physical models at Bachelor and Master exams. The
benefits of using familiar simulation and render software together with low cost,
accessible and portable VR HMD's in the authors opinion far outweighs the
reduced Field of View, lower frame-rate, lack of parallax and dynamic Point of
View compared to realtime rendered high end VR.
