Abstract:

The tangible table paradigm is of great interest and utility to landscape architects, but their
use is rare and often highly specialised. Here, we employ a cybernetics-informed perspective to analyse the input and output layers of this hybrid modelling mode and identify how it can become more flexible. These improvements informed the development of a piece of open-source software that integrates with contemporary augmented reality devices and established computational design methods. We present this integrative approach as essential to improving the accessibility
