Virtual Reality for Architectural or Territorial Representations: Usability Perceptions

Atta Idrawani Zaini, Mohamed Rashid Embi
2017 International Journal of Built Environment and Sustainability  
From the first analysis, it was found that the respondents perceived VR as a usable tool for architectural or territorial representation.  ...  This is an advantage for the aforementioned design disciplines, as more relatable and realistic depiction of a space can be modelled.  ...  The pursuit towards envisioning VR as a valid tool for architecture and urban design has come a long way. This paper is introductory, if not an advancement towards the continuation of the effort.  ...
