Users´experience of a virtual reality architectural model compared with users´experience of the completed building.
Paper i proceeding, 2003

We have investigated how the employees of a company experienced a VR-model of an office building that was to be their future work place and how that VR-experience compared with the employees' experience of the completed building. About two years after the VR-showings the building was completed and the staff had moved into the building. The results for the employees who saw the VR-presentation for the Semantic environment description scale (SMB) comparing the experiences of the VR-model with the experiences of the completed real building suggested that the experience of the VR-model gave a fairly accurate representation of the experience of the real building However, the reactions to the VR-model were more appreciative after the VR-show as compared with when the VR-model was compared with the real building.
