When the Edubuild exhibition opens next week in Sydney, BVN will welcome participants into a virtual world of learning spaces.
BVN are leading the development of virtual reality in architecture and Edubuild is providing a first-time opportunity for educators and those responsible for providing educational facilities to experience new spaces long before they become physical buildings.
BVN principal, Phillip Rossington, said advances in virtual reality technology are changing architecture and the methods employed in designing buildings.
“In a virtual design architects can explore concepts for new spaces in a more immediate way than was previously possible,” Rossington said.
“Even more compelling is the opportunity to take clients, such as teachers and librarians, into newly designed spaces and thereby to involve them in refining critical decisions whilst changes can still be made and before construction begins."
Edubuild is co-located with Edutech and according to organisers is the largest education and workplace learning event in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting 10,000 visitors from the entire education industry.
There are more than 200 exhibitors in the Edubuild exhibition and entry is free with the opportunity to avoid queues by pre-registering at www.edutech.net.au
Edubuild will be open for two days commencing Thursday, June 7 to Friday, June 8 at Sydney’s International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour.
