The research investigates the interrelations of aspects of communication between diverse co-planners and designers of architectural space, related to presentations and interpretations of eco-architectural ideas. It develops methodological framework to enhance projects where local communities or lay individuals collaborate in the architectural design (urban design and landscape design) process through information and communication technologies. Recent examples of neighbourhood-scale renewal projects illustrate experiences and problems of misunderstanding in the dialogue between "experts" and "users", and draw attention to the application of information and communication technology in that dialogue. The authors research is directed towards a quantitative and qualitative description of differences in how the general public and professionals perceive and understand architectural representations across a broad range of presentation types. The research examines the accuracy and efficiency of architectural presentations. The hypothesis that there are principles that can be described to enhance their correlation has already beed tested investigating the differences of understanding abstract and experiential means of representation by experts and users. The experiments of the proposed research are related first to the differences of physical to virtual environment with regard to the subjects prior knowledge of the physical, and the second testing how do sequence and different combinations of presentations and types of communication influence efficiency of architectural educational graphical user interface (GUI) for general public. The results will indicate an appropriate use and combination of presentations in communicating accurate information about spatial environments between expert and user, leading to the development of the methodological framework for evaluation of existing architectural design, presentation and education tools and development of new tools, especially for permanent educaton about the eco-architectural values.
