Designing for the user: the potential of extended reality for architectural design
Understanding how users will behave in an as-yet-unbuilt space is a challenging task that architects are constantly faced by.
One way to approach this challenge is to conduct behavioural experiments, which allows for the exact behaviour of participants in a space to be tracked and monitored.
Such behavioural experiments can be conducted in real or virtual spaces.
This talk discussed the potential for architectural design of conducting behavioural experiments in virtual environments.
Different types of medium and immersion are discussed, spanning virtual, mixed and augmented reality.
