Virtual and augmented reality are emerging as important and exciting tools for architects and designers. In this three-week course, we will introduce students to virtual reality as a tool for both creating and experiencing virtual spaces. Students will learn the basics of 3D modeling software, and will also spend time drawing and sketching three-dimensionally within VR. We will discuss technical aspects of how these systems work and how they might change the way we interact with computers. By the end, students will have designed and created their own virtual reality experience.

Spend the summer in Ithaca and (almost) complete an architecture minor!
