Looking to the future from home and walking through new urban development areas, even though they are not yet built? Virtual Reality (VR for short) makes it possible. wohnfonds_wien, Wien 3420 Aspern Developement AG and IBA_Vienna have jointly developed two virtual tours through the neighborhoods "Am Seebogen" and Wolfganggasse. Either use a PC, tablet or smartphone to navigate through the areas with a cursor or use a VR headset - e.g. a smartphone and matching VR glasses - and you are ready to go!
Graphic and pictorial representations of future building projects often give the impression of real photographs. But especially with larger development areas it remains difficult to imagine how the new quarter will present itself as a whole: how high will the individual buildings be, how large will the park be, how far will the subway station be from the school, all these questions usually remain unclear. With the implementation of the 360° degree representations it is now possible to get an overview easily and intuitively. By moving the cursor you can look to the right and to the left, turn, look up and down and even zoom in closer. This creates a realistic feeling for the quarter and its dimensions, which can be explored and got to know in this way long before the construction is completed.
Anyone who would like to take a look into the future of Seestadt Aspern with us has the opportunity to take their own personal virtual reality tour. You can either use your cursor to navigate through the quarter or use a VR headset - e.g. a smartphone and matching VR glasses - and off you go!
Our tip when using a VR headset: It's best to try out how you move through the virtual Urban Lakeside while sitting down - because you get a 360° view simply by turning your head.
Just click here and you will find yourself in Elinor-Ostrom-Park right next to the exit 'Seestadtpromenade' at the U2 station "Seestadt". From here you can explore the neighborhood 'Am Seebogen' along three routes.
You change your location by fixing the desired hotspot with the small crosshairs in the middle of the field of view. The link is then automatically triggered after 1-2 seconds.
Please note that loading the data may incur costs if you are not online via a WLAN.
From now on there is the possibility to visit the new urban neighbhorhood in Wolfganggasse in the 12th district via a virtual model. Click here and you are in the middle of the new area. Explore the neighborhood and how it fits into the existing environment.
