What is Virtual Architecture?

Virtual architecture is the process of creating a three-dimensional representation of a building or structure. This can be done for either practical or aesthetic purposes. For example, architects and engineers may use virtual architecture to test out different designs for a new building. Or, someone might create a virtual model of an historic building that no longer exists.

Creating a virtual model of a building requires special software that can create three-dimensional objects. Once the model is created, it can be viewed from any angle and rotated in order to get a better view. Additionally, people can walk through the model as if they were inside the actual building.
