Augmented Reality in Architecture projects result from an ongoing collaboration between the Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Lab in Columbia's Department of Computer Science and the Building Technologies Group in Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture.

We are developing augmented reality systems to improve methods for the construction, inspection, and renovation of architectural structures. Augmented reality systems add virtual computer-generated material to the surrounding physical world. Our augmented reality systems use see-through head-worn displays to overlay graphics and sounds on a person's naturally occurring vision and hearing. As the person moves about, the position and orientation of his or her head is tracked, allowing the overlaid material to remain tied to the physical world.
