ARki is a real-time augmented reality visualization service for architectural models. It incorporates AR technology into architecture by providing 3-D models with multiple levels of interactivity for both design and presentation purposes.
ARki can be used on any IOS/Android device. It simply overlays 3-D models onto existing 2-D floor plans, but also provides several other interactive functionalities, including real-time shadow analysis and material selection. Users can capture and record custom views of models in both movie and 3-D still format, and share their content via email or social media with a few clicks.
Recently recognised as one of the best augmented reality apps by Apple, ARki is an AR platform which helps 3d designers visualise their projects in location, improve the way they communicate their designs, and ultimately market their proposals with clients.
The platform was launched in 2019, and revolutionises the way architectural data is communicated in our cities. ARki helps streamline 3d data between the various stakeholders during all stages of an architectural project, and allows everyone involved in a project to have an easier understanding of 3d drawings.
The app is used by architecture and engineering studios globally, and recently commissioned by Network Rail’s Buildings and Architecture department, to showcase their collaborative footbridge designs to the public.
The recent update to ARki app showcases the nextgen railway footbridges catalogue in AR. Experience Frame, Beacon, Ribbon, Futura and AVA Bridge, which have been designed by a unique selection of designers including Haskoll, Knight architects, Gottlieb Palladun, Marks Barfield Architects, and Hawkins Brown.
The immersive visualisation in ARki simplifies the design process, and allows teams, and the public, an easy way of selecting footbridges for their local stations. By visualising the catalogue within a real-time 3d/AR experience, the Buildings and Architecture department encourage greater collaboration, and help teams to create more meaningful, beautiful buildings!
This is just one of the ways ARki is helping architects market their proposals using AR. The creation of the metaverse is just beginning, and we welcome the nextgen architects to join the revolution..
