Abstract: Projected spaces have appeared throughout history upon the physical forms of reality to suggest virtual spaces. By using visual cues, innate to our lexicon of understanding the world around us, representations have the ability to suggest space that is not physical. Cultural Spatialization compounds over the historical timeline of societal spatial understanding. It responds to new visual stimuli that emerges with new methods of spatial representation. Visual Interplay allows for the exchange of perceptual qualities between the elements of reality and the virtual. This exploration identifies the visual cues used by the architectural fabric’s physical forms that define space. It also defines those used by visual-virtual representations or “projected spaces” that suggest virtual-spatial additions. Through the evaluation across the historical timeline of projected spaces, the context of the cultural spatialization of today is identified. It suggests that present day built environment and visual-virtual representations are not reflective of these capabilities. The breadth of modern spatial experiences is categorized to bring to light the modern cultural spatialization. By contextualizing the modern viewer in light of these discoveries, the architect will be able to sculpt the visual interplay made possible by the technology that assisted in elevating our cultural spatialization.
