Real time data associated with the Building Information Model plays a critical role in the interpretation of the built environment, which is particularly relevant as an increasing number of education facilities and institutions promote sustainable engineering practices and monitoring data available to the public. However, it is challenging for non-technical audiences to fully comprehend or use information concealed in scientific data related to the performance of structures and materials. It is especially difficult for them to connect these concepts to physical contexts and phenomena. In this paper, we present how cross-reality paradigms in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction, coupled with multimodal representation techniques, enhance data literacy in both professionals and laypeople alike. In particular, we present the design of a learning environment where cutting-edge holographic interfaces and display technologies are combined with sonified and visual data to create a more immersive environment for data analysis and exploration, empowering users with situated data awareness and new ways of understanding real-time data.
