Abstract in another language

The architectural environment of public displays has a huge influence on their usage. In this position paper we present a design space based on two complementary concepts, Nimbus and Focus, to describe and compare public display configurations. Focus describes what one can see, and nimbus from where one can be seen. We performed a field study comparing three differently shaped public displays: Flat, Concave, and Hexagonal. Results show that Flat triggers the strongest honeypot effect, Hexagonal causes low social learning, and Concave triggers the smallest amount of simultaneously interacting users.
