The Future of Architecture

We worked with the team at Autodesk to create technology that can automatically perform real-time smoke, fire and crowd simulations for 3D buildings. Our role was to oversee and integrate the various components being developed by different team members, develop a web application that facilitated the communication between these components and bring them together into a unified prototype product.

The work leverages a wide range of tech including Emscripten, NodeJS, Express, C++, Lua, Javascript, WebGL 2, HLSL, GLSL, Amazon EC2, S3 and Autodesk Forge cloud services. This was a fascinating and challenging exploratory project that turned out very well – utilising cutting edge tech – and took the idea of "full-stack development" to a whole new level!
