Expertise Design a Virtual Showroom for Multiuser VR
L.J. Pavilion is a collaborative project by two fellow architects.
The idea is to design a Virtual Space to display the furniture designed by Me and Luciano.
The pavilion is situated in the futuristic skyline of Shanghai at night. The facade is modeled in Rhinoceros and is permeable to the city´s views. The main attraction of the installation is the rotatory platforms showcasing 2 of the parametrized artwork. We focused on the lighting and animation to make the experience more enjoyable in VR.
It was a great experience with VR.
Learning new software and integrating virtual reality in a week was particularly challenging and we were able to do it with the help of Mathias and Susanne
I sketched out the initial design manually and further developed it in Rhino and Grasshopper. The goal was to keep the furniture design parametric and also fluid.
we wanted to make the showroom compliment one of the furniture which was already designed by Luciano.
This can be clearly seen on the interior walls where I tried to use the same design language.
we also incorporated the lawn chair design on the ceiling as pendants to create a dynamic yet aesthetically appealing double-height space.
