source Connecting the Real and the Virtual - design e-ducation [20th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-0-8] Warsaw (Poland) 18-20 September 2002, pp. 430-439
summary This paper describes means to enhance projects where local communities collaborate in the design process through information and communication technologies (ICTs). Recent examples of neighbourhood-scale renewal projects illustrate experiences in the dialogue between ‘experts’ and ‘users’, and draw attention to the application of ICTs in that dialogue. The authors’ research is directed towards a quantitative and qualitative description of differences in how the general public and professionals perceive and understand architectural representations across a broad range of presentation types. Two initial studies by the authors are described. The first examines the accuracy and efficiency of architectural presentations. The second study investigates the relationship of physical to virtual environment with regard to the subjects’ prior knowledge of the physical. Analysis of the research work undertaken to date by the authors indicates an appropriate use and combination of experiential and conceptual means of presentation in communicating accurate information about spatial environments between expert and user. The analysis indicates that architectural intentions and user expectations coincide more closely through the means of experiential media, and confirms the hypothesis that there are principles that can be described to enhance their correlation.
