It is well known that both space and the spatial organization play an important role in our work and learning environments as well as in everyday life. Space is neither innocent nor neutral, it has a performative aspect for whoever inhabits it and it works on its occupants. At the micro level, space prohibits, decides what may occur, lays down the law, implies a certain order, commands and locates bodies. Therefore, there is a definite need for many persons to design their space along with an expert and to preview it in order to test its functionality. Many times there is a need for the inhabitants and workers to collaborate in order to co-design their space from distance.
