Interactivity and Spatiality - Experiences of Modelling Real Work Places as Virtual Places in a VR Collabortive Environment

Rosander, Charlotte LU (2000) i3 Annual conference: Building Tomorrow Today In Proceedings of i3 Annual conference 2000
Abstract
In this paper I will discuss interactivity and spatiality,

including the relationships between virtual places and work

places. The paper reports some initial experiences of using a

virtual reality (VR) tool for collaborative modelling. The aim

was to investigate how well this technology could support

participatory design of work environments. In a pilot study a

group of researchers carried out an experiment of long distance

collaborative design in a virtual environment.

Interactivity and spatiality are important aspects that need to

be considered in connection with emerging new technologies. In

the experimental study the virtual environment... (More)
In this paper I will discuss interactivity and spatiality,

including the relationships between virtual places and work

places. The paper reports some initial experiences of using a

virtual reality (VR) tool for collaborative modelling. The aim

was to investigate how well this technology could support

participatory design of work environments. In a pilot study a

group of researchers carried out an experiment of long distance

collaborative design in a virtual environment.

Interactivity and spatiality are important aspects that need to

be considered in connection with emerging new technologies. In

the experimental study the virtual environment represented a

real work place quite satisfactory. The participants

apprehended the virtual place as an interaction space for

designing and communicating ideas in a smooth and

unconstrained way. This initial work lays the basis for further

research about future work places and use of new information

technology, in a context of distributed work and various work

environments including virtual places. (Less)
