IMMERSITE®: digital tool for participatory design

IMMERSITE® is an interactive tool that facilitates dialogue and the inclusive design of development and construction projects using 3D visualisation. It is made up of an easily movable wooden table, a visual display screen, and 3D printed objects.

It is easy to interact with the computational modelling of projects and see the results directly. You can view the models at work by simply moving objects around on the 2D table display. 

Explain project impacts through objective calculations (decrease of sunshine, noise, etc.) and illustrate in a simple and educational way the solutions brought by the project (parking, car traffic, soft roads, vegetation, etc.).

We make these calculations based on the needs and issues at hand, and illustrate them in a simple and instructive way.

IMMERSITE® aims to include the User (neighbours, future occupants, associations, citizens, etc.) in the decision-making process of construction and urban development projects. We use the information generated by the teams designing the project (architects, urban planners, landscapers, etc.) while avoiding impeding their work.

Let’s Get Talking.

IMMERSITE® & You

#Customer Testimony

It was our second time using IMMERSITE®, after a first successful trial for the Arrauntz development project in Ustaritz. Usually in meetings you can just show people signs and maps, and there are a lot of questions from residents that are hard to explain with conventional maps. With IMMERSITE® it is really easy to immerse oneself in the project, to see its effect on the surrounding neighbourhood, and to answer to the questions and inquiries that people in the area have, especially the ones that will be directly impacted by it.

It is a highly effective tool and perfect for presentations of projects. The people of the neighbourhood that came to see it made it obvious. They got their hands on it and immediately were able to make it work, kind of like a video game, even if they weren't the youngest public, which proves that it works and that it is easy to use. I already thought that the tool was effective, from a point of view of its design, and how it portrays things, but seeing how intuitive it is for people makes it a real success

As promoters, we've seen our fair share of 3D models. IMMERSITE® goes a step beyond, letting you get a glimpse of the whole neighbourhood but above all making it interactive and getting people to talk about it. We are very satisfied with it and we are planning on using it for future projects, right from the consultation phase, even before the beginning of the project

IMMERSITE® enabled us to make an illustrated and commentated presentation that won over everyone present. All of the feedback that we got about the quality of the project was very flattering. I have quite a hard time making a picture in my mind, and with these 3D images you can actually touch what you want to make. It has become crucial for our productivity and made the job much easier for us.

Our objective in using IMMERSITE® was to have a tool that went out of the ordinary, was innovative, and presented the project as a whole. That way people could take into account the architectural but also environmental aspects of it. You can see how it would fit into the municipality, into its environment, and all the different uses that are possible. People could understand the project, see the difference it would make in their town, and check the impact it would have on their daily lives. (Historical Schools Project Manager, City of Bidart).
