Media Technologies are revolutionizing Real Estate - especially through XR. Meet VR Researcher Risa Tadauchi (Zaha Hadid Virtual Reality Group) and Boris Goldshteyn (CEO, ALLVR GmbH) who tell you all about the fascinating possibilities the new tools offer to architects and the real estate business.
Zaha Hadid Architects who have just recently designed the Beijing Daxing International Airport terminal building, have been a constant driver of highly specialised design solutions
and technological innovations. This enabled the studio’s leadership in digital design coordination and production and resulted in the foundation of the Zaha Hadid Virtual Reality Group
(ZHVR) in 2014. ZHVR is focussed on the production and proliferation of VR and the research of the potential specific technologies can have on the architectural design
process. Risa Tadauchi is leading a work-flow development project at ZHVR. She developed, among other projects, a project called Project Correl 1.0. This is a collaborative experiment in multi-presence virtual
reality (VR) illustrating the development of complex assemblies inside virtual space.
Boris Goldshteyn (ALLVR) from Berlin created a platform for virtual real-time communication that wants to enhance the whole communication while planning a project. He has a
technical background with a focus on business and management and worked at Bayer Pharma as IT project manager. ALLVR presents designs and plans as if they already existed.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) and VR are brought together. Estate agents can virtually visit apartments with their customers.
Both are going to inform you about the tools on the market and the opportunities that lie ahead. How do you gather data and process them directly to the customer? How can you communicate about
what you have seen? Can it be easier to sell a house or an apartment when the potential owners are able to experience a sunset in their fancy furnished new rooms through VR? Find out how
architects can conveniently plan and evaluate projects with XR tools and then use the data for the decisive pitch. Get to know if the technology is only suitable for bigger teams and architecture
firms that can provide enough hands to build APIs and custom made tool sets. Learn how the data can be used for further projects like on construction sites and how this industry is changing
Risa Tadauchis Project Correl 1.0 was exhibited at University Museum Contemporary Art (MUAC) in Mexico as part of “Zaha Hadid Design as Second Nature”, the first virtual reality
exhibition held in South America. Her project “Spatial Matrix:
Fundamental Virtual Spatiality Research” was exhibited at Arts University Bournemouth in UK as part of “Zaha Hadid Evolution”. She plays a key role in research and development projects for
the Zaha Hadid Virtual Reality Group. She holds a master degree from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, and a bachelor’s degree from Oxford Brookes University and has work experience in
London and Tokyo.
Boris Goldshteyn is the initiator and founder of ALLVR GmbH. In 2015 he started to develop first projects with Virtual Reality in the construction and housing industry after he
had talked to a friend about the problems of visualising their plans in architecture. A year later he founded ALLVR.
