Beyond the Physical Space: Potentials of Future Designs in Virtual Architecture

Virtual reality experiences often aim to replicate physical spaces, striving to create a sense of realism that can, however, sometimes feel deceptive and unauthentic. Abstract designs, on the other hand, are easily identifiable as virtual and can therefore be appreciated for their inherent qualities. This workshop will introduce you to the art of envisioning VR native environments that transcend physical representation. After an introduction via Zoom, participants will be able to join a tour through VRChat worlds, that propose alternative design elements. After the tour, the workshop members will collaborate to define new design archetypes of virtual architecture.

 

Schedule:

  • Introduction (Screen presentation via Zoom)
  • World Hopping (inside VRChat, parallel to Zoom call)
  • Brainstorming session (via Browser/ Miro board)
