When I was a kid, I was astonished by all the magic of fairy tales and Harry Potter stories.

Now with technology, we are able to recreate all the magic spells. Isn't it amazingly crazy?

Antihouse

ongoing project

  

Antihouse is an experience, where the user can be the witness of the first encounter of the architectural space with virtual reality. 

Our protagonist is The Space, surrounding us, the viewers. We can hear her thinking, and changing her shape according to her monologue. She discovers her newly earned virtual abilities, by slowly letting go of her analogue constraints, like gravity, statics of materials and feasibility. She rethinks what it means to be inside and outside, what the functions are of architectural elements and what is her relationship with humans in space.
