IMMERSITE®: digital tool for participatory design
IMMERSITE® is an interactive tool that facilitates dialogue and the inclusive design of development and construction pro
IMMERSITE® is made up of an easily movable wooden table, a visual display screen, and 3D printed objects. It is easy to interact with the computational modelling of projects and see the results directly. You can view the models at work by simply moving objects around on the 2D table display. Explain project impacts through objective calculations (decrease of sunshine, noise, etc.) and illustrate in a simple and educational way the solutions brought by the project (parking, car traffic, soft roads, vegetation, etc.). We make these calculations based on the needs and issues at hand, and illustrate them in a simple and instructive way. IMMERSITE® aims to include the User (neighbours, future occupants, associations, citizens, etc.) in the decision-making process of construction and urban development projects. We use the information generated by the teams designing the project (architects, urban planners, landscapers, etc.) while avoiding impeding their work.
