Thanks so much for you thoughtful and insightful response. It will certainly be super amazing to get you and the developing team’s personal expertise as the project develops!! We plan to finalize design and begin testing/construction in the coming weeks, with the hope of completion within 3 to 4 months.
I will share a in-progress rhino model shortly via private message. But in short, it’s an exterior free-standing (not part of a building) brick wall that measures about 22m in length and will be broken up into 4 individual segments that together forms a wall but are not physically connected necessarily. It is unlikely that there will be more than 2 brick types, the varying forms are mainly achieved through the curvature of the base surfaces and the rotations of the individual bricks. It is possible that we will only apply the AR workflow to one of the four segments, and the other three completed with a robotic arm.
Regarding the AR application options, due to the high price of HoloLens2, for now it seems unlikely that we will purchase one ourselves, but are looking for ways to perhaps lend one or seek for other ways of being supported…I was testing out the iOS app of Fologram and wonder if that may be an alternative in your opinion. Obviously it will not be as ideal as the headset, but may be cool that multiple people may all have their phones out and participate!? What would be some major limits (or functionality that you deem to be required for the workflow yet unavailable on the app) compared to the headset? For instance, would it be a lot less precise or present intolerable amount of deviations? I am quite comfortable with grasshopper and after going through some parts of your DigitalFutures workshops was hopeful that maybe using the phone might be an alternative.
