Space accepts pervasive technologies as an architectural feature inherent to design. As such, architecture is developing various links to video surveillance, crafting a new use and a new user of space. Consequently, a new type and layer of interaction is taking place in architectural space. We extend the experimental nature of 3D Virtual Environments to encompass our surveillance studies, and explore the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV). This paper contributes to the thinking of the architect positioning herself as the user of space while designing, replacing her as an empowered orchestrator of all the technologies attached to buildings.
