The construction of a Future School in virtual spaces and the development of a way to connect virtual space to real space
What does it actually mean to build a school in a virtual space? The goal of this exploratory tour is to think beyond the conventional practices of constructing online virtual architecture to question the role and function of the elements in play. The location of the school’s virtual buildings, for example, are determined by their relativity to the projects being conducted, their forms constantly changing depending on students’ activities within the virtual space. Each virtual building displays different information according to the user’s point of view, and this information is continually updated through Google Sheets. Meanwhile, users will also be able to walk through the virtual school by gesturing with two fingers on a smartphone touchscreen.
