Augmented Reality

I like to think of architecture as a vast space without any defined boundaries, more like a cyber space without gravity where the environment is being projected like an optical enhancement. The focus of it would be a perceptual phenomena playing with the pre-conscious innate aspects of human cognitive system. The language of architecture should be about empowerment of the viewer to perceive the world in his own way. It should enhance spectator’s experience by images born out of movement, capturing the dynamic energy of life and nature.

Technologies allow us to sense the world around us with the means of image, sound and light creating augmented realities where colour is tasted, sound is visualised and smell is felt by your skin. Organise the environment around us as an immense space where stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway – affecting every spectrum part of the human’s sensorium.

In a society where information is paramount, can we generate an environment responding back to us by re-contextualizing data as a physical object? In an age that has become increasingly beholden to data I’d like to think that we can design responsive and interactive spaces which might be considered as an analogous to time-based media.
