‘Virtual Reality, Videogames, Architecture and Education. From Utopian Drawings to Inconstructible Navigable Environments’

April 12, 2022

The doctoral research concerns the design and experience of navigable environments that are specific to the virtual realm; impossible to come across in the physical world, experienceable only through technological mediation. The project studies navigable media through the discourses surrounding VR in its first appearance during the 1990s, and through the evolution of interactive spatiality in the context of videogames. Furthermore, it pursues a design investigation of non-Euclidean navigable configurations through experimental game design, both as means to expand the ‘design space’ of spatiotemporal media, which largely rely on Euclidean-Cartesian premises and to produce interactive experiences for exploring latent aesthetic as well as sensory and cognitive capacities.
