Abstract

Creating interactive environment for public is a complex task, as designers have to manually adhere to various considerations, especially with involvement of stakeholders from divers background. In real world, the quality of a design result is generally determined by the degree to which compliance constraints have been reached. In contrast to most research about design constraints on technic application, user interface, or architecture, scanty study has been conducted on the constraints of environment design that synchronize interactive experience from comprehensive perspectives. As technology evolves at tremendous speed and interaction design has intertwines with environment experience more and more, it is necessary to discuss the constraints of Interactive Environment Design (IED). In this work, we present an integrated framework to create desirable IED for public use considering both internal parties and external stakeholders. Specifically, we analyze three types of constraints related to IED including management constraints, input constraints and system constraints. The proposed framework is investigated through the case study of Shek Kip Mei IED project for public use in Hong Kong. It could be used as a reference for academic research and industry practice in the future.

An Investigation of Interactive Environment Design Constraints

Creating interactive environment for public is a complex task, as designers have to manually adhere to various considerations, especially with involvement of stakeholders from divers background. In real world, the quality of a design result is generally determined by the degree to which compliance constraints have been reached. In contrast to most research about design constraints on technic application, user interface, or architecture, scanty study has been conducted on the constraints of environment design that synchronize interactive experience from comprehensive perspectives. As technology evolves at tremendous speed and interaction design has intertwines with environment experience more and more, it is necessary to discuss the constraints of Interactive Environment Design (IED). In this work, we present an integrated framework to create desirable IED for public use considering both internal parties and external stakeholders. Specifically, we analyze three types of constraints related to IED including management constraints, input constraints and system constraints. The proposed framework is investigated through the case study of Shek Kip Mei IED project for public use in Hong Kong. It could be used as a reference for academic research and industry practice in the future.
