Reality Check: VR and AR in Workplace Design Is Here

Tuesday, March 15
12:30PM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St


The rumors are true. Virtual and augmented realities (VR & AR) are disrupting workplace design at an accelerated pace. Beyond disrupting this industry, VR & AR are cultivating the rise of empathetic design as users bring their real-world experiences into virtual & augmented environments. This approach to visualization is helping to define and shape the design process. This interactive demo and panel discussion will integrate perspectives from four professionals’ experiences. Each panelist will convey how they have employed VR & AR and identify future implications. Participants will leave this session with a first-hand experience of how to solve design challenges with the help of VR & AR.
