    147: ‘The Era of Spatial Computing’, with John Manoochehri

    147: ‘The Era of Spatial Computing’, with John Manoochehri

    John Manoochehri joins the podcast to talk about how the intersection of design, architecture and engineering, game engines, and new hardware are changing the landscape and potential impact of spatial computing and digital environments for the authors and creators of these environments in the AEC industry. We address it from a cataloging, usage and licensing perspective, and talk about how creative industries are leading the way in exploring the potential of this medium. We also talk about how this tech is opening up new possibilities in fields like entertainment, productivity, and mental health, and how it also challenges our understanding of what good design means as it pushes beyond the experience of physical environments. And finally we chat about the intersection of digital and physical design and how a feedback loop could lead to shifts in the design of physical spaces based on people’s experiences in digital environments.
