Innovative Minds 2018: Regenesis is an exploration into the relationship between the virtual world blending with physical architecture. As the frequency of disasters increase around the world, designers need to address these events with new architectural strategies. A regenesis with virtual and physical design solutions needs to be explored in this competition. How can virtual and physical systems work in tandem to solve issues related to disasters? Can these designs create a safer world in the aftermath?
Some disasters occur on a macro scale and others on a micro scale, but both have significant impacts on a community. Explore local, site-specific solutions informed by virtual processes and also how these solutions could potentially impact the global community.
Enhance our world by instilling a regenesis with virtual and physical architecture.
