MS Dissertation title: Interaction in an immersive virtual Beijing courtyard house

MS Advisor(s): Chui Shui Chan

Area of MS research: In this project, an interactive VR simulation is developed for courtyard housing in Beijing, which is representative of traditional Chinese residential buildings. In addition to the static visualization, the structure of a major building is demonstrated interactively. Its major interaction mechanism is to show the constructional process step by step through menu selections. Each item uses the name of the components for naming purpose, and by clicking a menu item, the corresponding constructional step is shown in the VR environment.
