Boston Properties & FYOOG Architects
This project followed this Boston Properties project. FYOOG, leading architects in sustainable construction, were creating the model for this project.
“The model was stunning. It allowed our team, including our senior leadership, to better understand the proposed sculpture in the physical context. This invaluable tool enabled us to manipulate color, texture, lighting, and other variables to ensure we would be happy with the finished product before committing more than a half million dollars to fabrication.”
Charles J. Overly, Project Manager
FYOOG were designing an art piece to suspend in the lobby at 901 NY Ave. The lobby of a commercial premises is of course all important – being visitors’ first impression.
How would it look in situ? Too small and lost? Or too big, making the lobby feel less spacious and airy?
Augmented Reality could give a much greater sense of the art piece than would traditional renderings.
We converted FYOOG’s 3D model to AR. This is a simple 2 minute upload process. We adjusted the model so it’s steel-like and reflects light realistically.
We joined Boston and FYOOG in the lobby. Walking around the AR visualization, we all agreed – the model should not reach quite so far into the ‘head space’ of the lobby. FYOOG clipped 10 inches off the model.
