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. 429
Design proceeds through representations. We work with poetic analogy, evocation or functional analysis. As a taste of food may transport us through time to another space, so may a designer seek to evoke particular responses from an occupant of a space. Tabulations and spreadsheets set out a version of a future reality that will be a physical form that transports the occupant to higher perceptions of reality. Space therefor3e is understood through many representations and such multiple representations are needed in the design process as well as in the consumption or use of space.
