Most of my regular listeners know that I have recently taken a job in the architectural visualization world. I have moved to Seattle to work for a company called Studio 216, and am very thankful for the opportunities provided to me. In this Thanksgiving episode, I talk to my boss, Boaz Ashkenazy, about how Studio 216 is using VR to lead the arch vis world into the future.
Rev VR Podcast – Episode 113
I sometimes find it difficult to explain to folks what exactly I do for a living. Architectural visualization and “experiencing the unbuilt environment” are meaningless phrases unless you have some base knowledge of the architecture and real estate industries. Boaz has been doing this for over 10 years, and easily explains how we adapted an already thriving industry and brought virtual reality into the mix for an even deeper level of immersion.
We discuss a wide variety of topics, from developing sales center experiences, to finding the right way to add value to the client’s experience. Boaz had the opportunity to join me at Oculus Connect 2, and we talk about his experience of interacting with the VR community. We discuss UX/UI, and how important it is to make simple, but also elegant experiences.
As I have said before, I am very thankful for finding such an amazing company whose passion for VR and community involvement mirrors my own. I want to thank Boaz, Jamie, and Charlie for giving me this opportunity, and I look forward to continuing my journey into the Metaverse along with my team here at Studio 216.
