ACE Ventures! | Next Gen: How Video Games are Influencing Design!

AV_stantec_blogr

 In this ACEVenture, we’ll explore developments in both real time visualization production and virtual reality.  We’ll also look at how our relationship with Epic Games (creators of FortNite, Rocket League, and other AAA video games) has helped shape how we design.  Whether we’re building a driving simulator to help explain a new highway interchange, or creating an app to help crowd source design for a better skate park, these tools impact how we design and visualize real world projects.  Come along and we’ll show you what we’re up to!

PRESENTERS:

CHUCK LOUNSBERRY, Leader of Stantec Design Visualization Services Group

Some people think Chuck Lounsberry designs video games all day – they aren’t entirely wrong. As the Visualization Technology Leader, his job is to keep bleeding edge visualization tech in the hands of Stantec’s designers. Working in the Visualization field for over 20 years, Chuck has a deep understanding of the innovative impact that AR/VR/MR and Real Time applications can have on a designers workflow and has worked to develop bespoke solutions for some of Stantec’s most high profile clients.

 

 

 

ANTHONY LaBELLA, Creative Director, Stantec Design Visualization Services Group

Anthony LaBella leads a talented team of visualization specialists at Stantec who create a wide range of graphic deliverables, from traditional 3D renderings to interactive VR simulations. Anthony uses his Industrial Design education and gaming background to shape the way designers and end-clients can best visualize and interact with their proposed designs. Some projects are best visualized with a simple rendering but more complex designs like the Lynch Family Skate Park in Boston require cutting edge virtual reality and video game technology to help tell the full story.

The challenge of how to best express, showcase, interpret, communicate, or engage with designs across multiple disciplines is only part of what makes her career so entertaining. She has access to cutting edge technology to create those experiences which has resulted in a dynamic career full of endless possibility.
