INFINIUM Studio:

INFINIUM is an arts and architecture project that aims to promote independent thought and symbiosis in art, digital craft, and architecture.

What is INFINIUM Pavilion?

The INFINIUM Studio aims to design a META PAVILION, incorporating various themed exhibition spaces alongside other programs, demonstrating the importance of upholding a balance between the art-digital-architecture relationship, particularly in this ever-evolving digital era and artificial intelligence.

INFINIUM Studio

The Scope of The Studio:

INFINIUM will be at the base of a mega architectural project of contemplation that can be experienced inside Unreal Engine. The Infinium Pavilion will be conceptualized as a cultural and artistic space in the middle of a fictional alien landscape, where we will build the project components, the artifacts exhibited, and its environment inside Houdini.

Its imaginary location will serve as a connection between Natural Environments and Artificial Intelligence.

The studio is highly creative and technical and is open for both beginner and intermediate levels.
