Architectural Visualization Using Virtual Reality: A User Experience in Simulating Buildings of a Community College in Bukidnon, Philippines

Benzar Glen Grepon, Aldwin Lester Martinez

The study aims to design and develop a virtual structural design that simulates the campus and its buildings of a community college in Bukidnon, Philippines through Virtual Reality. With the immersion of technology, this project represents the architectural design of the establishment with the use of Virtual Reality Technology. The project uses a modified Iterative Development Model which is a guide for the design and development of the 3D Models and VR Application. TinkerCAD which is a web-based application has been used to design buildings on the other hand Unity is used to develop the structural designs of the buildings. The respondents of this study are the Grade 12 Senior High students from the 4 schools which are geographically near to the college. With this study, the researchers were able to showcase its VR Application to the students and later evaluated using a System Usability Scale, a 10 item questionnaire measuring usability with an overall average of 90% or Point Score of 4.5 which is interpreted as excellent in a Likert table for descriptive interpretation. With the use of the VR application potential students of the college will be able to visualize and experience the present structures of the college without being physically present in the area. In this paper, the buildings and structures of NBCC were designed and developed through a Virtual Reality Platform allowing students from different secondary schools that are geographically near to the college to experience the feeling to be in the school without being able to set a step in physically.
