Philosophy:

 

There exists a conversation between digital and physical architecture that is both profound and evolving. As polished as our virtual worlds are in terms of polygons and detail, humans have merely just arrived at the initial forefront of comprehensively experiencing digital 3D space outside of 2D platforms. Humanity manufactured an inhabitable, theoretically infinite universe. Reality has become redefined by digital adjectives. Virtual and augmented are lingual admissions of an ethereal tactility. Currently, digital reality precipitates perceived habitation through the sensory input of sight, sound, and movement. Although, the limits of our technologies are exponentially evaporating. Eventually, humans will interact with the digital realm through all the senses. At this point,  humanity will possess the ability to consciously inhabit a universe unbound by the limitation of physics, materiality, time, and space. The fact that popular culture has repeatedly investigated the motif of an inhabitable digital realm serves as proof that humans maintain a desire to manifest this idea.

Because of our digital revolution, architecture diverged into the physical and the digital and their respective purposes differ greatly. These purposes evolve distinctly but in conversation with each other. Digital Architecture exists as an accessible and universal playground for users to interact,  enjoy, and experience limited only by imagination. Physical Architecture’s purpose must be to provide sustenance, introspection, and grounding which places humans in their mortal context. Architects will achieve so not by advancing the possible in the real world, but by strictly defining what is impossible while flirting with impossible’s boundaries. Physical Architecture’s ability, that is to allow people to inherently understand they are inhabiting mortal bodies, should transcend sense; striking ethos and pathos equally and powerfully.
