The Porter School of Environmental Studies
An Augmented Reality Application to Visualise Architecture
ARki PSES showcases the underlying environmental strategies that make up the architectural design of the Porter School of Environmental Studies in Tel Aviv, Israel. The app was developed for the "ecological ripples exhibition" using augmented reality technology to visualise the narrative behind the architectural design in real-time, through the deployment of several interactivity features.
In this project, key aspects of the building design are demonstrated through a series of animations that help communicate the design agenda in a novel way. The app consists of seven specific features which include, sun path, wind circulation, lighting strategy, mechanical strategy, sustainable material strategy, program strategy, and environmental skin. A 3d model of the building is separated into layers to highlight specific components of the design and help better understand the integrated functionalities of the architectural agenda. Each one of these 3d layers can be viewed in isolation via a series of buttons, which help control the presentation of the architectural design.
