Imagining spaces

Door Klaas van der Veen 23 November 2017


Below are some products that help visitors or stakeholders ‘see’ a space good enough to judge if they want to explore it or invest in it.

It is a tool to shape ones relation with the built environment and its possibilities.

Drawings of spaces, or floorpans, are more or less abstract, to leave out those features which are less important to the visitor (we must decide which, of course).

But even a ‘realistic’ 3D world is partly fake. Its measurements might be correct, its representation is artificial. It resembles reality strongly enough, yet it differs from reality in that it is much more schematic. Of course, this 3D world is much more appealing, invites looking at it, but must not induce expectations that can’t be met by the real place.
