The Virginia Tech School of Architecture and School of Design have a strong tradition of experiential learning, making, and direct engagement with materials and we continue to use traditional tools as we incorporate new ones. Produced by graduate and undergraduate students, this informal collection of work bridges disciplines and educational levels and showcases the digital fabrication offerings of the Schools.

3D immersive technologies like AR/VR and 3D scanning are transforming the design field through enhanced visualization and interaction capabilities. By incorporating these technologies, the School of Architecture and School of Design are not only advancing traditional design methods but also enriching experiential learning and hands-on pedagogy. This approach improves precision and efficiency and bridges the gap between digital designs and their physical realizations, thereby encouraging innovative problem-solving and a deeper understanding of the design process.
