BVN demonstrates the power of VR in design and decision making

Virtual Learning Spaces at Edubuild

When the Edubuild exhibition opens on Thursday 7 June in Sydney’s International Convention Centre, BVN will welcome people into a virtual world of learning spaces.

BVN are leading the development of virtual reality in architecture and Edubuild is providing an opportunity for the first time to invite educators and those responsible for providing educational facilities to experience new spaces long before they become physical buildings.

According to Phillip Rossington, Principal, BVN, advances in virtual reality technology are changing architecture and the methods employed in designing buildings.

“In a virtual design architects can explore concepts for new spaces in a more immediate way than was previously possible,” said Mr Rossington.

“Even more compelling is the opportunity to take clients, such as teachers and librarians, into newly designed spaces and thereby to involve them in refining critical decisions whilst changes can still be made before construction begins,” said Mr Rossington

Edubuild is co-located with Edutech and according to organisers is the largest education and workplace learning event in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting 10,000 visitors from the entire education industry.

There are more than 200 exhibitors in the Edubuild exhibition and entry is free with the opportunity to avoid queues by pre-registering at

Edubuild will be open for two days Thursday 7 June and Friday 8 June in the Sydney’s ICC at Darling Harbour.
