Meta-Fluid Studio

After the successful launch of the “META-Fluid Studio” workshop with fantastic results from the students, requests for the second iteration of this studio arose. The “META-Fluid Studio 2.0” takes another step to unlock the potential of Fluid Design with the Maya software to develop cyber-urban environments in virtual cities.

The Meta-Fluid Studio 2.0 explores the quality and power of Fluid Design to conceive cyber-urban environments in virtual cities. The goal is to create a free-standing virtual city designed by 30 different designers teamed up in 3s. For this studio, some teams will create meta-archi typologies, and some designers will join skills to create a ‘meta-urban’ base. Combined, they will create a free-standing, fluid virtual urban field and prove the Multi-Author Urban Design to be the directionality for the future of virtual cities.

During this studio, the designers will get acquainted with the 3d modeling software Autodesk Maya, the number one software for Fluid Architecture in the current real-life scenario – and Unreal Engine for the immersive experience of their designs.

For the Meta-Fluid Studio, virtual environments are as real as Physical environments. Together they strengthen the fluid experience of space and push the boundaries of Fluid Design in Architecture.

Meta Archi-Typologies: Event Spaces; NFT exhibitions; Crypto Markets; Concert Stages; Sports Stadium; Lice Streamed Arenas / Fashion walkways/ Entertainment and nightlife.

Meta-urban Typologies: Master planners; vertical and horizontal voided buildings; water and green ration; multi-layers of urban circulation.

Software:

Autodesk Maya: Autodesk Maya is one of the top digital design tools because of its versatility and freedom in design.

Unreal Engine: With Unreal Engine, you can bring amazing real-time experiences to life using the world’s most advanced 3D creation tool.
