Abstract

As architecture and the built environment develops beyond static vernacular traditions to a state where buildings and intelligent environments become more advanced within augmented and virtual realities, this article considers how architecture can expand into a transformative dimension beyond the physical reality of architectural space. My practice utilizes cognitive science in combination with art installation and audio-visual (AV) interventions to create immersive environments.
