title From Chinese Gardens to Virtual Environments. A Gateway to Cyberspace
source Digital Design - Research and Practice [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures / ISBN 1-4020-1210-1] Tainan (Taiwan) 1315 October 2003, pp. 271-278
summary Chinese gardens provide situated portals through which poets or artists can enter their imaginary worlds. Similarly, a visual interface (virtual environment) of a cyberspace provides entrances to this potentially infinite space. Derived from design principles of Chinese gardens, we propose a design method for creating virtual environments. We use this method to design and visualise several cyberspaces, including web sites, virtual Chinese gardens and 3D computer games. We conduct empirical studies and find virtual environments, created by the proposed method, provide users with experience correlated to the expected result.
