Immersive and Virtual Architecture at the Edge of Physicality
In this discussion, SCI-Arc hosts seven distinguished architects and theorists that work at the intersection of physical and virtual worlds. These professionals will present their work and ideas and discuss the practice of immersive and virtual architecture, which spans animation and 3D technologies, digital environments, and questions of materiality ranging from theory to contemporary practices. The discussion will explore the convergence of the material and the virtual within contemporary architecture, while also questioning the future of these shifting definitions and asking how these classifications will define our understanding of the relationships between tangible and intangible worlds. Participants include Benjamin Bratton, Jean Michel Crettaz, Manuel DeLanda, Ed Keller, JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, Eric Owen Moss and Marcos Novak.
