In the Architect Magazine feature 5 Steps to Make VR a Reality in Your Practice, Payette’s 3D Visualization Designer David Hamel discusses how we incorporated the new tool into our practice.
VR has become an important part of our design process, with more teams now utilizing VR at all stages of design. We have enabled teams to make adjustments with perfect accuracy when analyzing what a visitor will see when progressing through a landscape and over a very crucial pedestrian bridge.
