Spatial Matrix Prototype 01

Fundamental Research in Virtual Spatiality

The Spatial Matrix_Prototype01 is ZHVR Group’s foundational research in Virtual Spatiality (commonly referred to as cyberspace).

The research is an early study of using data concepts such as dynamic data transition and interactivity between data and users in real time inside game engines. The interactive data and management concepts developed here were deployed in later research projects.  

The Spatial Matrix_Prototype01 outlines a hierarchical progression of architectural spatial concepts and analyses how they may be translated into VR using game engines. The resulting VR experiences helped us evaluate the mapping of architectural frames of reference, spatiality, and aesthetics into VR.
