Architecture & Mixed Reality

Two Strelka talks, one by Ben Cerveny on the “IPhone Moment in Architecture” and the other by Liam Young on the “Green Screen World”. Fascinating speculations on some of the “architectural and urban consequences of mixed reality.” Like dialing up or down the layers of augmented reality; luxury becoming the resolution of the world you can afford; buildings that become nothing more than green screen stages where everything else is projected; or collaboratively owned, designed, and built buildings created with planners and architects functioning more as game designers.
