With the continuous development of China's social and economic civilization, interaction design has more and more connections with our urban space construction. As a fusion of science, technology and art, interaction design has played an important role in promoting the development of various industries in public spaces. In interaction design, space is not an empty container for everything in the world, nor is it a scientifically abstract mechanical or geometric space. The purpose of this article is to explore and study the relationship between exhibits and space visitors through the spatial expression of interactive design. This paper studies the number of accounts for users of a city construction website to learn about interaction design knowledge, and investigates the customer satisfaction survey of a construction company using interaction design in the construction of urban public spaces, and the degree of execution of interaction design methods by a certain university’s technicians and scholars. Analyze and study the characteristics of interaction design and the application of spatial concepts in interaction design. Through an experimental investigation of existing interaction design, the results show that interaction design has become a concrete and practical way of creation, opening up a new perspective for traditional space design, improving the efficiency of interaction design information transmission, and making the design richer and more comprehensive. It is more interesting, logical and scientific, and aims to develop different design interaction ideas and apply them to the future urban public spaces.
