PROGRESS TOWARDS AN AMERICAN FULL SCALE ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN SIMULATION LABORATORY (SIM-LAB)
Proceedings of the 1st European Full-Scale Workshop Conference / ISBN 87-88373-20-7 / Copenhagen (Denmark) 15-16 January 1987, pp. 45-51
The need for a hands-on, full scale mock-up facility where elements of the man-made environment can be tried out before being built has recently become of considerable concern to people from a wide range of fields. This is possibly a result of a more general recognition of all the barriers which crowd our physical environment; the barriers which impede our ability to work effectively and dwell comfortably. It may also have something to do with the fact that funds are no longer available for the building and production of too hastily conceived designs of the sort which need extensive modification and improvement in order to function in an acceptable manner.
