Wernemyr, Claes; Westerdahl, Börje; Roupé, Mattias; Sunesson, Kaj and Allwood, Carl Martin LU (2003) The 1st international conference on advanced research in virtual and rapid prototyping In Proceedings of the 1st international conference on advanced research in virtual and rapid prototyping p.363-370
Abstract
This research investigated how the employees of a company experienced a VR-model of an office building that was to be their future work place and how that VR-experience com¬pared with the employees’ experience of the completed building. About two years after the VR-showings the building was completed and the staff had moved into the building. The results for the employees who saw the VR-presentation for the Semantic environment de¬scrip¬tion scale (SMB) comparing the experiences of the VR-model with the experiences of the completed real building suggested that the experience of the VR-model gave a fairly accurate representation of the experience of the real building However, the reactions to the VR-model were more appreciative after the...
