This paper describes an on going research that uses design experimentation to provide an insight into different modes of space representation – in this case, physical, augmented or virtual space – and the type of experience triggered by their juxtaposition. We investigate, thus, how the simultaneous labyrinthic navigation and the moving or “shifting” “overview” enrich our experience of the city and “bring forth” the function of the bus-stop as an intermediate space of transition. We also question the way in which one perceives his/her own body spatiality and motility in physical, augmented and virtual environments, and how the particular kind of experience created by this juxtaposition, “brings forth” one’s awareness of his/her navigation in the city, or the instrumentality of the specific place. Our theoretical approach highlights issues pertaining to embodiment, spatiality, consciousness, intentionality, virtuality and immateriality.
