What Pokemon Go can teach us about the future of architecture: Part 2

AR, Augmented Reality, design, innovation, Pokemon, Pokemon Go future of architecture
In our last post we discussed how, for the first time for many people, Pokemon Go introduced an augmented reality (AR) that is both mobile and interactive, seamlessly integrating digital elements with our physical surroundings. We also posited that as this technology progresses, AR will have a profound effect on the practice of architecture, both on the buildings we design and the tools and methods we use to design them. For this post, we’d like to share a few ideas from these two realms.

Pokemon-Go-Graphic-2(a)_Edited

By now you’ve surely heard about the worldwide phenomenon that is Pokemon Go. For the uninitiated, it is a smartphone game requiring players to move around the real world in order to find and capture fantasy creatures called Pokemon.

Shepley named program architect for IIT innovation institute

Monday, 10 March 2014

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined Illinois Tech President John Anderson on Friday to announce that Shepley Bulfinch and John Ronan Architects will program and design the planned Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship on the University’s Mies van der Rohe campus.

Developing the program for the Institute means that Shepley will collaborate with IIT’s stakeholders and the design architect to explore, evaluate, and synthesize ways to create a new building type uniquely suited to IIT’s culture of research, collaboration, and invention.

Construction on the $40 million, 100,000 square-foot facility could begin as early as the summer of 2015 with a completion date anticipated in 2017.

“The new Kaplan Institute at ...[more]

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

ABX_Greenbuild_sign2The wait is over. Greenbuild and ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) 2017 are here – lucky for us, quite literally in our Boston office’s backyard. Combining events for the first time, we’re thrilled to join thousands of green building cohorts from across industries and around the globe to elevate design through shared principles and practices. Here are just of few of the conversations we’re looking forward to this week:

Immersive Visualization
As technology advances, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) tools are increasingly valuable to design. We’re trading notes and demos with peers and partners to uncover how different firms are utilizing ...[more]
