Squint/Opera, BIG and UNStudio create virtual-reality collaborative design tool



Creative digital studio Squint/Opera has worked with BIG and UNStudio to create Hyperform, a tool that allows architects and planners to collaborate in virtual reality.
Described by BIG founder Bjarke Ingels as the "augmented creative collaborative environment of the future", the tool can be used to see, share and navigate digital models of projects.
Hyperform, which the studios have been developing for two years, is a virtual desktop that can be accessed from computers, tablets, smartphones, or using a virtual-reality headset.
Hyperform will allow architects to share architectural models
As well as looking at models in neutral space, Hyperform can be used to digitally view models of buildings within the environments that they are being designed for. The tool uses geolocation data to create a virtual model of a building and the landscape surrounding it, to allow architects to see how the building will relate to its environment.
Jan Bunge, managing director at Squint/Opera, describes this space as a "test environment".
The tool can be accessed on computer, tablets or using a VR headset
"We usually discuss a 3D setting on a 2D interface. You can never feel the space. Sometimes you can build 1:1 mock ups of certain elements of a building, or an interior space, but this lets you experience in places in 3D," Bunge told Dezeen.
"Hyperform marks the first time we can feel and sense a spatial condition before it gets built," he continued.
