The use of cardboard and duct tape to make life-sized replicas of a workspace. Most often used within a 3P process.
The use of cardboard makes the space easier to imagine for the users of the space, rather than 3-D renderings or drawings. The intent is to physically experience the workspace or area, and view it from the customers perspective, to make sure everything was considered. Cardboard makes it easy to create and easy to change, before the real items are purchased or ordered.
