Nicholas LiCausi, Digital Fabrication Manager, and Jesse Toohey, Fabrication Technician and BSA student, explored multiple software and service options to best adapt to the changing standards of presentation, deciding that Unity and custom programming were the most sensible and intuitive. This space is intended to be a bridge between the familiar “in-person” review structure and the new territory of online instruction. Details such as HVAC and stacked chairs were added to reduce the sterile characteristics of a virtual space while reminding users of the space’s qualities.

After Tulane School of Architecture went remote in the middle of March due to COVID-19, the team used a pre-existing 3D scan of the space to remotely produce accurate dimensions for the digital model. Matterport Scan by Victor Garcia.
Rather than just having a Zoom presentation for their final review, students had a virtual space to show the result of their collective efforts. Students were asked to produce a 4’x8’ board giving an overview of their work. Some students have also provided 3D models of their projects.
The virtual exhibition is periodically being updated as students continue to work on their theses.
