Description du projet :
Sean Lally Architecture Sàrl is an architecture bureau created by Professor Sean Lally and versed in virtual reality. It aims to present architecture and its creations in a dynamic and novel fashion to be enjoyed by all. Through a mix of augmented reality in previous projects (The Long Now) and virtual reality (Shaped Touches), their aim has been to propose different ways of perceiving and interacting between architects, their creations and the general public.
Currently, the bureau focuses on creating a set of tools to produce immersive virtual worlds to be experienced. The end goal is the creation of an online virtual talk show with live host, guests and audience, all participating from home in these designed spaces. This would create another level of interactivity between architects, clients and guests that would be of interest to many others beyond this specific project. Parts of this project are inherently immersive and straightforward to produce, for example bringing a building into a virtual world, others are much more complex to achieve and outside the expertise of the bureau. The part that this project concerns relates to bringing guests in an immersive manner into the virtual world. Current options which include a streaming webcam video plane presents very obvious limitations on experience and immersion. The research would focus on evaluating the different methods that the research collaborator could propose and suggest to bring 3D virtual humans in the talk show.
