Visualization Lab

vislab1

The lab introduces new imaging techniques for research and teaching. Researchers and their students can not only glimpse at the future through the lab but also at the present and the past – of architecture, landscape architecture, and planning and design.

The research and applied projects include the following:

  • Testing the user experience in coastal environments under various physical and social conditions.
  • Examining human behavior in built-in interactive environments (including historical environments).
  • Simulating dialogue and community in a planned future environment.
  • Exploring human cognition and perception while navigating an urban environment and large internal spaces.
  • Assessing the ecological, aesthetic and tourist value of open and forested landscapes.
  • Broadening the circle of stakeholders in the community by using 3D simulations of urban architectural developments and scenarios, thereby preventing the gap between professional jargon and popular perceptions of possible developments.
  • Examining traffic patterns in urban environments at different points in time.

The lab contains:

One 2.4-inch screen with a 75-degree field of vision, three Projectiondesign® projectors, a high-quality sound system, 3D capabilities and motion sensors to control the on-screen display.

The lab was designed and installed by Antycip Simulation
