Having been a promising visualization tool since the 1950s, ironically, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) was not widely used in the architectural design and evaluation process due to the high cost of equipment and complex programming process required. However, with the recent development of head-mounted display (HMD) such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft HoloLens, and easy-to-use game engines, both VR and AR are being reintroduced as Mixed Reality (MR) instruments into design industry. The research focuses on the design and implementation of a data visualization resource within UC to provide new opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching and research with cutting-edge interactive and immersive virtual reality visualization technology.
