Methodology

Step1: Experiments
Make experiments of interpreting simple artifacts and gather experience.
In my undergraduate period, I had used 3D tools to interpret the given sites and tested the possibilities. I also made some 3D section rendering to present my design idea. In the recent two years, I did some interpretation prototype designs of old paintings.

Step2:
Background Study
There are several areas of background knowledge need to be studied: Architecture design, Architecture history, interpretation principles, cultures of interface and navigation design, and multimedia programming.

Step3:
Survey
Make the printed surveys and in person interviews on potential users to gather ideas of possible interpretation channels and threats.

Step4: Secondary Analysis
Utilize the primary data and the secondary data to reconsider the outlines of research, figure out unforeseen issues and variables.

Step5:
Prototype Design
Make a prototype interface design of an Australian Architecture Electronic Gallery. Provide different multimedia methods for users to interpret the works online.

Step6: Further Survey
Gather user's critiques and new requirements through the launched gallery and enrich the contents.

Step7: Critical and Qualitative Analysis
Keep repeating step 6, record the development procedure, make critical analysis and qualitative summary of the research.
