ACAIT workshop papers @ MABí»18


Augmenting Cities and Architecture with Immersive Technologies (ACAIT)

In conjunction with MABí»18

13 November 2018, Beijing, China<>





Immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) have the potential to augment experiences within cities and the process of designing architecture. However, more work is needed to understand specific applications within these areas and how they can be designed. Therefore, the main aim of the workshop is to discuss and ideate use-cases for creating situated augmented reality (AR) and immersive applications for the purpose of making cities more engaging and to visualise architectural designs.




We welcome researchers and practitioners working on engaging experiences using AR and other immersive technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) within the context of enhancing architecture, public spaces and cities. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

*  The use of immersive technologies and applications in cities

*  Speculative designs, design fictions, and art projects;

*  Perspectives from literature

*  How immersive technologies and applications interact/enhance existing urban infrastructure/technologies (Public displays, Media facades, Buildings, Town squares, etc)

*  Visualising architectural designs in-situ and how such applications should be created

*  The effect of immersive technologies on culture and behaviour in cities




Participants are asked to contribute to the workshop with a position paper or research note, which introduces and discusses their chosen topic, as well as a short biography (200 words). The maximum length of workshop position papers is 2,500 words (excluding references). Please only submit PDF files ensuring the file size is below 5MB. Please submit your paper by email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and cc [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> .
