Article
This study evaluated the impact of visual transparency vs. opaqueness in storefront window displays in relation to consumer responses and approach behavior. While there is extensive prior literature analyzing various design features in such exterior-facing displays, the ability to see through or around the window displays to observe the store inter...

Research examining older adults interactions with Virtual Reality (VR) and the impact of social VR experiences on outcomes such as social engagement has been limited, especially among older adults. This multi-site pilot study evaluated the feasibility and acceptability of a novel social virtual reality (VR) program that paired older adults from dif...
Preprint
Full-text available
Virtual reality (VR) is increasingly used as a platform for social interaction, including as a means for older adults to maintain engagement. However, there has been limited research to examine the features of social VR that are most relevant to older adults experiences. The current study was conducted to qualitatively analyze the behavior of older...
Article
Full-text available
Background and Objectives Exposure to nature and nature-based imagery has been shown to improve mood states and stave off cognitive decline in older adults. Even “micro-doses” of natural scenery can provide beneficial effects in situations where more extensive interactions with nature are not feasible. In the current study we evaluated the use of v...

Engaging with natural environments and representations of nature has been shown to improve mood states and reduce cognitive decline in older adults. The current study evaluated the use of virtual reality (VR) for presenting immersive 360 degree nature videos and a digitally designed interactive garden for this purpose. Fifty participants (age 60 pl...

Developments in cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging technologies make it possible to interface directly with the human brain using sensors. Brain activity during the navigation of built space is influenced by user perception and cognition in interaction with visual stimuli. This paper has a fourfold aim: (a) to elucidate the concept of design...
Article
Wayfinding difficulties in healthcare facilities have been shown to increase anxiety among patients and visitors, to reduce staff operational efficiency, and to increase operational costs. There is evidence that wayfinding-oriented interior design features can mitigate these problems, but the robust evaluation of wayfinding design strategies is hin...

Wayfinding difficulties in healthcare facilities have been shown to increase anxiety among patients and visitors and reduce staff operational efficiency. Wayfinding-oriented interior design features have proven beneficial, but the evaluation of their performance is hindered by the unique nature healthcare facilities and the expense of testing diffe...
Article
Full-text available
The realistic possibility of using non-metric digital cameras to achieve reliable 3D models has eased the application of photogrammetry in different domains. Documentation, conservation and dissemination of the Cultural Heritage (CH) can be obtained and implemented through virtual copies and replicas. Structure-from-Motion (SfM) photogrammetry has...
Research Proposal
AEC projects generate great amounts of data and information that must be accessed by numerous parties, in numerous locations, and under varied conditions. Nevertheless, the construction activity or existing build environment typically takes place in environments remotely located from design and planning studios and the parties involved. Moreover, B...

The impressive success of Structure-from-Motion Photogrammetry (SfM) has spread out the application of image-based 3D reconstruction to a larger community. In the field of Archeological Heritage documentation, this has opened the possibility of training local people to accomplish photogrammetric data acquisition in those remote regions where the or...
Research Proposal
this proposal aims to investigate Occupant Behavior which is evident as a major contributing factor to the uncertainty of building performance. On the other side, adaptive, non-adaptive triggers as well as the contextual factors influencing occupant behavior which later would result in dynamic energy simulation as indicated in aforementioned paragr...
Research Proposal
The Internet of Things (IoT), which can monitor and collect a large amount of data on various contexts of a building and feed the data to the processor, provides a new opportunity to integrate intelligence to monitor and manage the energy consumption of the building in a cost-effective manner. This proposal aims to improve and ameliorate facilities...
Research Proposal
of Project Nowadays attentiveness in the application of 3D digitalization of architectural spaces to have more intergraded layered data in order to use for different purposes on one side and increased attention to use new portable technologies to stay tuned on the other side had ease the procedure of comprehension and interaction for human being wi...
Research Proposal
The goal of this PhD proposal is to investigate and suggest a cooperative building design process that designers and users can interact and provide feedback on the energy performance of constructed and unconstructed conditioned zones. Moreover, the proposal aims to develop tools in which Augmented and Virtual reality were used to visualize and anal...
Research Proposal
Innovative sustainable design solutions necessitate complicated interplay between environmental, economic and social aspects in which can be investigated entirely through descriptive criteria of sustainability and measurable ones. This research proposal aims to investigate the different East African contexts, and propose a practical sustainable sol...

Project
This study aims to find a methodology for documentation of buildings with different data layer by using aerial image of high-resolution thermal imagery and imagery using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Later photogrammetric, 3D modeling, animated texture mapping, 3D animating and energy analysis software would be used for having complete understanding of project. This would also reveal previously undocumented architectural elements by reciprocating procedure. Layered based information would give us the opportunity of having various kind of output in the form of mathematical data, CG images, VR and animated analysis which is more comprehensive for today’s life.
