AUGMARENA / A TRANS-DIMENSIONAL SOCIAL NETWORK
When I think of architecture, images come to my mind, images of worlds different from ours. I believe our world is a collection of overlapping microcosms of different scales, we enter and exit these microcosms daily, but few of them are so small or large in scale that it becomes inconceivable to us. Like the space between the complex matrix of a sponge or a trabecular structure of a bone; between the growth of branches in a tree or spaces in between the riverine system of a river; in the complex neural network of our brain or the networks of streets in our cities. Everything has a world of its own, we have our own world built through interactions of forces from the outside world. There is another world made up of codes, the digital world, where everything is possible. The world that is built with our imagination, which redefined the way we socialize, communicate, entertain and exchange ideas. We see the influence of the digital world more pressing today than any time in history, digital has turned from being a mare anomaly within the reality to be a new reality. My journey through M.S AAD has been the transition from Ecology centered Architecture to Digital Ecology centered Architecture, with the focus on technology as a main driving force.
