What is Blended Space?
John Spacey, updated on August 11, 2016
Blended space is an architectural component such as a room that features both physical and virtual elements designed to complement each other. Virtual elements can be used to entertain, decorate, information and engage with a user interface. The physical aspect of blended space may increase a sense of immersion while the virtual aspect gives the space endless possibilities that defy physical realities. The practice is currently common in experimental environments, theme parks and modern art exhibits. However, blended space has great commercial potential for the design of homes, work environments, retail shops, educational facilities and other physical environments that offer an experience.
