Digital Design Ecology to Generate a Speculative Virtual Environment Reimagining New Relativity Laws
This paper presents the trilogy of virtual classifications, the speculative environment, the virtual inhabitant and the virtual built-form. These combine, generating a new realm of design within immersive architectural space, all to be designed relative to each other, this paper focuses on the speculative environment portion. This challenged computational design and representation through atmospheric filters, visible environment boundaries, materiality and audio experience. The speculative environment was generated manipulating the physical laws of the physical world, applied within the virtual space. The outcome provided a new spatial experience of architectural dynamics enhanced by detailed spatial qualities. Design concepts within this paper suggest at what immersive virtual reality can evolve into. Following an interconnective design methodology framework allowed a high level of complexity and richness to shine through the research case study throughout the process and final dissemination stages.
