Vrchitecture: Door, Hologram panel, Chongqing Times Art Museum
The architectural theorist Rem Koolhaas mentioned in his book “Elements of Architecture” that “doors”, as a formerly complex element, are increasingly being dematerialized with the aid of various new technologies and are gradually becoming a hindrance to the increasing demand for mobility, transparency, and accessibility in contemporary society. However, in the Metaverse, the “doors” are already dematerialized and need rich details to emphasize their existence, while also serving a connecting function rather than a hindering one. “The Elements of Vrchitecture” is a series of experimental projects by the VrchStudio that attempts to define the basic building blocks of virtual space while exploring their narrative potentials. In this project, AI-generated “doors” become a unique hyperlink that breaks down the boundaries between physical and virtual spaces, continuously reconstructing the spatial relationships in the Metaverse.
