HXS: A Journey of an Architecture Firm to Create a Human Experience Lab in the Hub of Architectural Practice
This presentation covers how a global architecture firm has invested in a space, a hybrid lab/studio, for rapid prototyping, sensor-based assessments, and simulations.
Three critical components were initially identified:
1. Think Space: a space where designers and researchers can come together and ideate on exploration and innovation
2. Make Space: a space where designers can create three dimensional realities based on dialogues with research teams
3. Test Space: a space where researchers can test the efficacy of design solutions to inform new iterations
