Why Virtual Landscape?
Currently, virtual space is used as a tool to increase the efficiency of real space design. However, it is also possible to use space design and its methodology such as landscape design as a tool for efficient virtual space design.
Although the virtual space is very flexible as a design domain and there are many variables to consider in the design process, there is no formal methodology to design the virtual space properly. A lot of research and techniques on the implementation and representation of objects, effects, and assets placed in the virtual space were obtained. However, there was no valid answer to the question of how to arrange those objects, effects, and assets in such a way as to fabricate them into space.
Studies such as landscape architecture and urban design have been studying human senses in space for a long time and have made use of them to create a pleasant or beautiful space. These design methodologies allow a space to be accessed as a landscape rather than a single physical area, and this is the approach that current virtual space needs. More than a virtual space, virtual landscape.
The implementation of the virtual landscape based on the landscape design technique enables designers to understand the characteristics of virtual space better and to allow computational approach. It makes it easier and faster to create a virtual space, which makes the virtual space more user-friendly. Furthermore, these virtual spaces help designers to communicate their intentions more efficiently. At the same time, for students majoring in landscape architecture, virtual space is very attractive in many ways. You can make the space you want to express relatively easily and quickly. Although digital games are still the most active users of virtual space, digital games will be the main focus of such research. However, with the advancement of technology and the utilization of virtual space for various purposes, landscape artists will be active in more areas I believe.
