Maelstrom joins architects' league

  • Comment
round-up

Virtual-reality company Maelstrom has taken its first steps into the architecture market with work for Leicester City Football Club on the design of its new 32,000-seat stadium. 'We are trying to bring some of the qualities of pre-render software into virtual reality, 'said Maelstrom's Matt Davies.The imagery is built from the CAD plan and offers the client more freedom to wander through and around the building than does a flythrough with a pre-set itinerary. 'It is useful for testing concepts and designs, 'said Davies. 'I am always amazed by the number of things clients haven't realised from the plans, such as the links between rooms.' The Leicester VR model took two people about three months to build.

Maelstrom is now talking to architects, including FaulknerBrowns.
