Augmented : Reality :: Architecture : Interface
University of North Carolina at Charlotte
We present research on the integration of augmented reality and architecture using a design science research methodology. Our goal is to consider the design of architectural space and augmented reality (AR) applications simultaneously. The architectural brief is an archeological museum/excavation site that directly confronts issues of occupation, circulation, form, and access to large archives of information. Combining the efforts of twelve architectural designers with a team of AR developers, we develop a taxonomy of affordances, feedback mechanisms, and output/display options. This taxonomy constitutes preliminary usability heuristics for the use of AR as an embodied device for interaction in architectural settings.
