How big data and architecture combine to succeed

Most people today know that big data and virtual reality (VR) have changed the way departments like marketing do business, but they may not realize that these two technologies also have a significant impact on other industries. Big data and architecture is a technology combination worth exploring deeply.201808131730514465.jpg


The two technologies can complement each other

Some forward-looking manufacturers are experimenting with big data and virtual reality (VR) methods in their daily work.A company called Ennead Architects USES virtual reality (VR) to bridge the gap between what they learn from data and what they can't imagine.

During the construction of a planetarium project, the architect provides environmental data about how daylight enters the building to a virtual reality (VR) platform, allowing people to watch visual representations through virtual reality headsets.

In addition, another project the company is running collects data on users' access to existing buildings.Next, they created a model of the people traffic pattern.With this model, they can assess things like how layout changes might affect people's activities or how people are most likely to stay inside buildings to talk to others, and for how long.

Architects can transcend the representation of two-dimensional design

Computer modeling has changed everything, but not so long ago, two-dimensional drawings limited architects' ability to accurately imagine future buildings or explain concepts to clients.Virtual reality greatly improves visualization methods and can help customers reduce costs, especially when architects also use big data.

For example, some home renovations can be costly, and many householders run out of money before they finish renovations.But if householders want to upgrade at their residences, and communicate with architects on budgets and plans, that could lower costs.

It is often difficult to imagine how much certain things might cost and to conclude whether the costs are justified.Architects can not only create sketches to show customers how to view a sliding glass door or a glass window in an area, but also encourage customers to wear virtual reality (VR) headsets to see the added effect in the virtual world.

Then, a construction company might have a large data platform that aggregates customer data and makes it anonymous.If this is the case, if the customer decides to use vr to demonstrate the enhancements shown, they can answer questions about the materials used by the customer and the cost of these projects.

Virtual reality (VR) can also help construction companies ensure they comply with and meet building codes for basic components, such as customer and employee lounges.Paying attention to code and other details can avoid unexpected cost reductions, and can help people find the most convenient locations for the toilets, lavatories, or other parts of a building that are often used.

Most construction professionals plan to use virtual reality (VR) technology this year

Chaos Group, a Group that studies visualization technology, surveyed nearly 6,000 architects.The survey found that more than two-thirds of respondents said they planned to use virtual reality (VR).,

In addition, 80 percent of respondents who already use virtual reality (VR) at work are doing so for multiple projects, suggesting that those early adopters are happy with the results.Furthermore, it emphasizes that virtual reality (VR) in architecture is not just a possibility, but has occurred.

Big data helps architects predict future factors

Past architects relied heavily on guesswork when calculating factors such as population growth or the effects of climate change.Big data is helpful for architects to understand the location and personnel factors, and then incorporate relevant inspirations into their designs.

Data sets and modeling can help architects test the feasibility of design concepts before building them in real life.Alternatively, those professionals might study data storage related to local authorities and find problems that different design options can remedy, rather than exacerbating over time.

Some clients also want data collection inside buildings that they know can help with future planning.

Consider the scenario where customers want to gradually make buildings more energy efficient.Big data platforms can track resource usage and indicate the return on investment of a particular project.Based on this information, they can choose how often to make more energy-efficient improvements and speed up.

Big data is a key element of smart city design

"Smart city", which is closely related to people's work and life, has become more and more prominent in the society and is no longer a dream facing the future.While some are built from scratch, city officials, architects, and related professionals are making buildings smarter by installing sensor networks to improve energy efficiency and by building and optimizing buildings that can withstand the likely impacts of climate change over the years.

The analysts even point out that while they rely on architects to design buildings, they also rely on data architects to develop data-based infrastructure that matches easily visible architectural structures.

While participating in the construction of smart cities, architects can use the database they use when communicating with building contractors or clients to help set expectations and reduce costs.In addition, they can use the data while working on other smart buildings, whether in the same city or in different locations.

Virtual reality (VR) technology reshaping the construction industry

The above example illustrates how architects incorporate virtual reality (VR) and big data into their workflows to reduce costs, set customer expectations, and visualize the look and feel prior to the pre-planning stage.With improvements in both technologies and experiments in various ways, more progress can be expected.
