Abstract

This paper presents a study of using a software tool for augmenting two-dimensional plan drawings with interactive graphic view cone shapes, mobile isovists. Space syntax research has shown that view cone shapes relate to experiential qualities of being in space, but little discussion exists of how the shapes could be directly used in exploring design problems, which all may not be well defined. To explore this potential, a software tool was developed and tested in a student project that relied on manipulating visibility. The results of the study suggest that using interactive plan drawings opens up design problem field in sufficiently rich way to negate the need for three-dimensional modeling and navigation in natural perspectives.

DESIGN 2008 - 10th International Design ConferenceDESIGN 2008 Conference was founded on the continuous development of organization and evaluation procedure that resulted in a capacity to deliver procedures and conditions of communicative competence. To assist the process of development for the engineering design research community the organizers of DESIGN 2008 propsed seven core areas for the conference as described below. It was required explicitly from all contributors to show how they are contributing to the overall area to emerge communities...
