I'd imagine hololens would be more practical and easier to scale.
Hololens 2 is around $3500, this is supposed to come in at $600 (dev kit though). The pro variant is $3000-6000 though, but you'd need a hololens for each person looking at the architecture model or are you going to ask clients to swap around glasses?

When it comes to connectivity, the display connects to your PC using standard DisplayPort connections and also includes a USB Type-B input
Serious bps there though

I doubt cost is much of an option where they're useful. Nasa, Boeing, Toyota, Airbus... Hololens gives you far greater scale and portability. They also have pretty different applications - AR vs VR. The 'use case' highlighted in the article isn't too creative.

I'ts kind of a better 3D TV.
Anyway, time will tell.
