Amsterdam Area, Netherlands

In February 2017 I attended the Dutch Housing Studio of the TU Delft. In my graduation research, I studied with the help of virtual reality how people perceive a street and how dwelling design influences this perception. Since then, I have been able to develop this knowledge at BFAS. Trying to make a step forward in the research of people’s perception, we attempt to enter the field of human emotions within urban environment by simulating this in virtual reality. In cooperation with STIPO and TU Delft we develop a virtual reality tool in which the human perception of the urban environment can be visualized. The result are used to better understand how a city at eye level is experienced.
