The AR headset manufacturer Magic Leap is partnering with Geopogo, an AR solution that enables architects, builders, and their clients to design spaces, collaborate on planning, and facilitate engaging presentations through visualization of architectural interiors and exteriors.
California-based Geopogo aims to transform the design and construction process through its 3D design software that allows architects and designers to create renderings and AR/VR experiences using existing CAD models or building directly with the Geopogo creator tool.
Coupled with Magic Leap’s AR headset platform, Geopogo’s software will help bring architectural designs to life by fostering interaction between digital content and the physical world. “This is a phenomenal opportunity to make architectural design understandable and accessible to project clients, city officials, and the general public,” said Geopogo’s Creative Director, Michael Hoppe.
The American Institute of Architects, San Francisco (AIASF) deployed the technology as part of its ‘Shape Your City’ campaign. The organization is looking to raise funds for its new headquarters in the Bay Area’s new Center for Architecture + Design and host architecture-focused tours, exhibitions, and educational programs.
“The power of the AR experience succeeded in inspiring donors to contribute much-needed construction funding for the project, as hoped for by the non-profit organizations. We were especially happy to see how the AR experience brought so much delight to the faces of the non-profit Board, the organization members, and members of the larger community,” said Dave Alpert, Geopogo CEO and Cofounder.
“The AR model has allowed our project partners, Board members, potential donors, and community to experience the future Center first-hand and visualize the positive impact it will have on future generations,” added AIASF Executive Director, Stacy Williams.
