The University Furtwangen has been part of the exhibition Ideal Space. The university students have created various 3d worlds as renderings. Besides only providing predevined renderings the students have developed an interactive installation which is composed of different physical elements such as sand and wooden blocks, which, in their different combinations create a 3D visualization projected in front of the visitors. The sand is used to form the terrain and building bricks, symbolizing certain kinds of architecture, are either mapped directly into the virtual world as landmarks, such as temples, or represent a local change in the virtual world such as an area or street. By crafting the worlds with their own hands, a haptic experience will be provided.
Exhibition at the Venice Biennale for Architecture 2016, From May 28th to November 27th 2016, Palazzo Mora, Room 7, Strada Nuova #3659, Venezia, Italia
