Construction on Display: Exploring Types and Purpose of Public Displays on Construction Sites


Memarovic, Nemanja (2015). Construction on Display: Exploring Types and Purpose of Public Displays on Construction Sites. In: 4th ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays, Saarbrucken, 10 June 2015 - 12 June 2015.

Abstract

Construction sites are a common part of a city landscape, e.g., website Urban Toronto reports on 650+ registered works for the city of Toronto, while New London Architecture reports on 195 in London. Up until now there has been little research looking into how public displays are used at these settings. This paper reports on an exploratory study that looked into understanding the use of public displays on construction sites. By analyzing types of displays and their purpose on 38 construction sites located on 2 continents and 4 cities, I have uncovered 10 different types of displays that serve to fulfill 9 identified objectives. Based on this I provide 5 general design implications for pervasive public displays. Overall, the contribution of this paper lies in describing the use of public displays in a new context and providing design implications for them.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
