The “Wing It” exhibit (both actual and virtual) just won a 2018 SEGD Global Design Merit award!!
The Winged Insect Exhibition is designed by students in Environmental Design and New Media course. Students created multiple virtual versions of The Winged Insects exhibition before holding the exhibition in the actual space. The 3D designs were developed with tools like Sketchup, Maya, and Blender to produce ISO-IEC standard X3D. The X3D version of the Exhibition allows for multi-stakeholder and multi-platform design presentations through W
eb3D and Immersive Hyper Cube exper ience.
Through the X3D version of Winged Insects exhibition in the Hyper Cube students experienced multiple prototypes and changed their design in the virtual space. This is the final design of The Winged Insects exhibition in the Cowgill Hall at Virginia Tech.
