At ArchDaily, we work diligently to bring you the most useful insights and best stories about architecture from around the world. Virtual Reality is quickly developing into an unprecedented tool for architects to share their designs in unparalleled ways—enhancing architects' ability to communicate spatial ideas to clients and enabling more informed decision-making. To build on our coverage of successful case studies of virtual reality in architecture, we have partnered with SentioVR to create the ArchDaily 360 experience—an in-app feature that transports you to a collection of architectural sites that can be viewed in 360 degrees using Samsung's Gear VR platform.

What is the Archdaily 360 Experience?

The ArchDaily 360 Experience is a curated gallery of images and videos of significant architecture sites that can be viewed in 360 degrees using a Samsung Gear VR headset. Each experience is captured in a series of 360 images that give you a feeling of being physically present. From Sesc Pompeia (Brazil) to Torre Reforma (Mexico), through the power of virtual reality you can now transport yourself and draw inspiration from the best projects in the world.
