This is the website of The Middlebrow Network, an AHRC-funded project developing research around the “loaded and disreputable term” ‘middlebrow’. Coined in the early twentieth century, ‘middlebrow’ can be defined as referring to “moderately intellectual” cultural production, perceived by some as of limited value.

Architectural References to Virtual Environments Design
Based on a comparison between the perception of digital and real construction, the development of virtual systems and the review of additional sources, this paper states some differences between the design of virtual environments and architectural spaces. Virtual-reality technologies provide advanced capabilities to simulate real situations, and also to create digital worlds not referred to physical places, such as imaginary landscapes or environments devoted to electronic activities, like enter

Ecological Validity of Real Scale Models
Space simulation is a technique employed by architects, urban designers, environmental psychologists and other related specialists. It is used for academic and research purposes, as an aid to evaluate the impact that the built environment or that to be built would yield in potential or real users. Real Scale Model is organized as one of the models which represents more reliable spatial characteristics in space simulations. However, it is necessary to know the ecological validity of the simulat
