Project Description

In a sprawling desert, a unique cinematic experience unfolds through multiple dome screens, each depicting a distinct architectural tale.

Journeying through three dystopian worlds, we first explore “High Rise Cult,”, a forsaken village where wooden skyscraper replicas are buoyed by balloons, symbolizing fragile hopes. Next, “The Doomed City” draws us into a city birthed in no man’s land, influenced by a painting by Nicholas Roerich. The third architectural tale - “Phygital Limbo”. A perplexing digital environment is continuously stimulated by synthetic engine based on human emotions. Being here is akin to experiencing a conscious collective dream.

This immersive film challenges perceptions, blurring the boundaries of architectural imagination and reality.
