Abstract

We report a study using ARTHUR, an augmented reality
system in which simulated pedestrians (agents) interact with design proposals during architectural design and urban planning. We looked at the effects of the agents on how designers used the system. We found that the simulation encouraged complex integration of design and review which took the designers in unexpected directions. It also reduced the extent that participants ‘envisioned’. Participants used the
agents in many ‘design experiments’, but unexpected agent behaviour could be frustrating, creating a tendency for subjects to block or corral agents (rather than create opportunities). We discuss our findings.
