How LSI Architects replaces floor maps through augmented reality
LSI is an award winning architectural practice with around 60 staff. From offices in London and Norwich, LSI undertakes projects throughout the UK and overseas. The practice aims to create sustainable, innovative, valuable and positive architecture. Architecture that improves lives, builds communities and enhances society.
A challenge for all architects is communicating concepts and visions for buildings, while this is achievable through plans and drawings for some, for many it is very difficult to imagine that concept or vision through a floor plan. Augmented reality addresses these challenges by facilitating the communication of ideas, concepts, and visions for their building.
Using Augment’s software, LSI has showcased its projects at a number of events animating previously static 2D blueprints. For instance, LSI used Augment to showcase its student residences project at the University of East Anglia. Clients are able to engage with LSI’s buildings in an innovative way.
As the firm continually strives to provide better service, allowing audiences to visualize, interpret and engage with the design further than ever before is an exciting proposition. The practice of employing augmented reality receives better feedback and the end product is a building that is better designed, and better meets the needs of the end users.
