Ember An Experience
(Best Viewed Directly on Desktop or With VR Viewer for Mobile Devices by Link )
We could not have understood the joy of the living wall or the excitement of the loft without actually standing in the space. Use a basic virtual reality headset to view the links below. We personally use Pasonomi VR Glasses to view immersive virtual spaces. We created these views with Revit LT 2016, Autodesk Cloud Rendering and Stereoscopic View Generation Services by Autodesk.
