If You Could See What They Hear

scenarios of sound system design can drive a person mad.

Advances in architectural modeling software mean that virtual reality (VR) is not new to the building industry. But according to Michael Vorlander, a professor at the Institute of Technical Acoustics at RWTH Aachen University in Germany, VR systems could soon integrate simulation, visualization, and auralization for interactive design processes in architecture. In the future, 3D images and real-time audio processing will be used to create and modify rooms and sound systems in a virtual environment (see photo).

The current walk-through technology is the result of an a-priori (propositional knowledge) designed environment with animation along a user-defined path; whereas a real-time VR system offers an interactive visualization and auralization of the design process itself.
