Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book examines the concept of mixed reality (MR) and its applications to design collaboration, architecture, construction, and education and learning. . This book is well organized into five major sections . . will help readers grasp the current state of MR in the field of architecture design. . the book provides an in-depth examination of virtuality and reality concepts, which were identified in broad ranging areas such as scientific visualization and collaboration, thus allowing readers to engage with MR from a more fundamental viewpoint."
