Abstrakt

Popularized under the name of virtual reality (VR), virtual environments (VEs) are increasingly gaining traction. However, current research on immersive VEs has focused mainly on the individual level, overshadowing the organizational context, while black-boxing the technology that facilitates the immersive VEs (i.e. head-mounted displays). Hence, we draw on a longitudinal case study to investigate the interaction between head-mounted displays and organizational routines. Employing insights from organizational routines and Leonardi’s (2011) imbrication lens we demonstrate how head-mounted displays interact with organizational routines. We highlight the materiality of immersive VEs and provide an alternative explanation for why immersive technologies are not used more frequently. We also identify negative and positive consequences of the use of immersive VEs on architectural organizations.
