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.
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.
