There are few people better suited to comment on the current state of virtual reality than Michał and Mikołaj from influential Swiss architecture studio Herzog & de Meuron.
Michał joined Herzog & de Meuron in 2014 to expand an in-house team of visualization experts. His duties include producing high-profile images, 360 stereo panoramas, and real-time VR content. He's also working on improving the viz pipeline, and advising architectural team members on workflows.
Mikolaj is a diehard VR architect, self-taught programmer, web designer, and photographer. He joined Herzog & de Meuron’s Digital Technologies Group in 2015 to help visual artists push VR technology further, and integrate it into the everyday design processes.
Using different presentation flavors, we’ll take you on a journey through the history of VR, the requirements it covers, and its most important techniques and technologies.

We’ll show you how it’s becoming the ultimate communication tool.
