Anthony Masure, Guillaume Helleu, «Web3 and mixed reality: when design meets decentralization», communication dans le cadre de la ARUP East Asia Design School, «Other Tomorrows: Exploring how we live, work and connect in 2035», T.H.E Design, Hong Kong, 17 février 2023
Following the meeting of immersive (mixed reality) and Web3 technologies (opened by the Ethereum blockchain in 2015), the boundary between the physical and virtual worlds has never been so thin. The link between these two sectors has major implications for interior design, which has become an expanded field from video games to “impossible spaces” (4D, non-Euclidean perspective, etc.). This lecture will study the the future of architectural practices. What are the new business models and value chains opened by these technologies? What could be an “authentic” digital or a decentralized architecture? What are the consequences in terms of creation?
