Geometry of Visual Experience in Large Spaces

Sep 23, 2016

One way to describe the complex structure of spatial experience is to divide space into solid regions where different experiences are possible. This approach would allow the designer to draw maps of potential experiences for any built environment. The maps would help to predict where certain parts of the environment are perceived concurrently and also to anticipate sequences of experiences by individuals taking different paths through the environment. The researcher describes first steps towards constructing such a predictive model.
