title An Empirical Inquiry into the Perceptual Qualities of Spatial Enclosures in Head Mounted Display Driven VR Systems - Quantifying the 'Intangibles' of Space
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 3, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 125-132
summary This research is an inquiry into correlations between specific configurations of virtual spatial enclosures and corresponding perceptual responses in subjects. The experiments comprised of three sets - opening configurations, volume configurations and partition configurations. The perceptual parameters tested were Degree of Enclosure (E), Degree of Separation (P), and Spaciousness (S) respectively. Immersive virtual environments depicting enclosures with these different configurations were presented to 25 subjects through a head mounted VR gear. Responses were recorded in the form of verbal ratings. The results revealed that one's visual field along the horizontal axis at eye level plays a major role in the way specific attributes of spatial enclosures are perceived. One's perception of 'openness' in an enclosure correlated strongly with the amount of physical opening that was present along the horizontal axis at eye level, while the perception of 'spaciousness' correlated strongly with the amount of visual obstruction within one's horizontal visual field at eye level. It was found that larger unified openings between enclosures along eye level created a weaker sense of visual separation as compared smaller dispersed openings of equal cumulative area.
