|Hey, is it real, virtual or both?-possibilities of I-park in one city of Tricity conurbation.|
It is possible that in the near future special planning will have one more “e-dimension”.
Easily imaginative is situation when some elements of our present urban space exist only in virtual reality and when people walking on the streets, sitting in a park or in some sort of public transport are using a kind of electronic devices to see additional layer of “reality”. If e-space and real world co-exist on one common layer, will we be able to recognise differences, or will it still be any reasons to separate them? Is it possible for our, human senses to receive in the same time signals from virtual and real world?
For proper presentation this should be emphasised:
· Why both virtual and real together?
· Which elements should be put into virtual, which may be inserted there and which shouldn’t be there?
· What law regulations should be considered?
· Isn’t this only substitution for something?
· Is it really cheaper to put some information into virtual dimension?
· How spatial planning will change in such circumstances?
· Do building owners agree that people perceive their ownership in uncontrolled ways or there will be urban elements that won’t have something like customise option?
· Do we – planers will regulate also e-layer in local urban plans?
· Is there a reason to still separate virtual from real?
· Won’t we lose ourselves in only virtual layer and lose care of things from real world?
· Do we be able to recognise what is real?
· Is it wonderful opportunity for handicapped or easiest way to schizophrenia?
· Won’t our cites look in grey colours because e.g. elevations will be customised in cyber-layer?
In my opinion it is just next step of bringing Internet to the streets.
This case study refers to topic of Parallel Session 3: Cyberspace and the Loss of Concentration.

Combining two sources of information, received by senses from real environment and virtual world can be treated as normal thing for future man with enhanced body or specially equipped one. For people used to such way of seeing the surroundings, world may seem to be incomplete after turning off virtual part
In such circumstances we can be sure that city will look different. Urban space will change its character. KIS gives another wide possibilities in our urban domain staring from three-dimensional designing of space throughout executing of spatial law to space managing.
Gdansk Science Park is being proposed as testing site area. Interesting is that libraries can have form of green parks or empty halls where bookshelves are located only in virtual layer.
Concentration than have a meaning not connected with certain place in reality, but in virtual space. This also brings next accent on proper planning of virtual space. In this situation we can boldly say that there is no such case as the ”loss of concentration”. There is only the situation of moving it to virtual layer of reality.
It is sure that spatial planning will expand to virtual space and we will have to confront problem connected with interaction between real and virtual space.
