Are you interested in taking part in research on improving the design of housing?

Participants in this research will use virtual reality (VR) to view and experience photorealistic 3d models of UK housing designs. They will be asked to critique each design based on a set of quality criteria which will be determined with the participants, aimed at identifying how to make UK housing design age friendly.
