Rapid urbanization in developing countries has paved way to spontaneous settlements, which are overcrowded. The aim of this work is to assess the impact of Virtual Reality (VR) on different types of sustainable construction techniques that are proposed for rural slum communities. The work mainly focuses on a walkthrough and interactions on a prototype of a sustainable housing unit in a rural slum community built with eco-friendly building materials, natural light source and ventilation.
