Test chambers

In each of the four test chambers, several features are present with which the environmental parameter in question can be illustrated and tested. These exhibits will be flexible.

Air quality

  • To visualize and perceive how a portable HVAC system operates.
  • To smell and evaluate different furnishing materials under different conditions with smelling devices
  • To demonstrate and apply human performance testing equipment.
  • To demonstrate and apply environmental monitoring devices.
  • To experience different ventilation rates and learn about source control.

Thermal quality

  • To demonstrate effects of light, and the distribution of light by interior design and choice of materials
  • To learn, experience and test responses of people to different situations in order to optimize the resulting light distribution in the space depending on task and context – in terms of functional, perceptual and atmosphere attributes.

Lighting quality

  • To demonstrate effects of light, and the distribution of light by interior design and choice of materials
  • To learn, experience and test responses of people to different situations in order to optimize the resulting light distribution in the space depending on task and context – in terms of functional, perceptual and atmosphere attributes.

Acoustical quality

  • To demonstrate, experience and learn about the perception of different acoustical sources and low frequent vs. high frequent sounds.
  • To learn, experience and measure the perception of different acoustical situations by changing materials, changing the sound and using subjective perception as well as human physical testing.
