Empowering Students

For students, the Lab offers a unique opportunity to engage with emerging technologies and gain practical experience in their respective fields. By using virtual reality, students can visualize complex concepts, detect design flaws, and improve their problem-solving skills and experience the metaverse firsthand and explore its potential applications.

State-of-the-Art Equipment 

Faculty members can use the immersive nature of virtual environments to enhance their teaching methods and provide a better understanding and visualization of architectural space and form. The lab's facilities enable professors to dive into aspects of scale, proportion, spatial experience, design development, and details that would have been challenging to represent.
