Latest hardware and software development in computer science and software engineering have promoted Augmented Reality (AR) prototypes for a number of architecture and design applications. Recent development in digital fabrication tools and techniques added more inspiration and support to implement AR technology in design and construction in order to solve complex issues even though more practical platforms are still required for effective digital information usage in such industries. Due to capability of this visualization platform, this study presents the concept and supplementary supporting technologies of AR to demonstrate the feasibility in architectural education and studio learning. Besides, this paper also discusses how the recognized technology could sensibly be addressed in architectural environment.
