On Friday 5 July, the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture will be organizing the Midsummer Night Lecture, an annual lecture that marks the end of our academic year. This year's edition will be delivered by VR-evangelist and founder of WeMakeVR, Avinash Changa. He will take us into the world of immersive technologies; the current state, the future and of course the applications for architecture and urban planning.
Avinash Changa is an all-rounder in the field of digital concepts and production techniques. Since its inception in 2013, WeMakeVR has developed into one of the most award-winning VR-companies in the Netherlands, and is an internationally recognised pioneer. New York Times, Forbes, VRFocus and many others have written about WeMakeVR, covering it’s educational, healthcare and social purposes work as well as its commercial work. BBC world news has featured WeMakeVR with a prime-time 6-minute interview about VR applications that go beyond entertainment. WeMakeVR’s mission is to bring people moments of joy and improve quality of life, with emerging technologies as the tools to continuously go beyond the world’s expectations.
