Greg Lynn is an innovative designer that has recently begun using augmented reality architecture software in his design plans, as seen with the construction of the US Pavilion. The VR software allows creatives to create in three dimension miniatures of projects and ideas without having to utilize resources or building time. Instead all the concepts are realized using softwares such as the Microsoft HoloLens that lets architects see their designs brought to life at a miniature scale.

The Microsoft HoloLens provides a VR headset that designers can wear while utilizing their own hands to build and shape the buildings and projects they are working on. The use of augmented reality lends itself well to the industry, allowing creatives to design the exterior as well as the interior of layouts.
