VR&ARCHITECTURE: MEETING WITH GABRIELE PITACCO AND RAJ X TOT
Immersiveness needs to define places, settings, structures. Together with Gabriele Pitacco and Raj X Tot we will investigate the relationship between space and virtual reality. With the former we will deal with the subject of digitally augmented physical reality and with the latter the relationship between virtual reality and the search for other imagined and imaginable spaces.
After years working in the best architects’ studios in the world (OMA / Rem Koolhaas in Rotterdam and Beijing, OBR – Open Building Research in Genova, Architekten Cie. in Amsterdam) Gabriele Pitacco founds gpa / Gabriele Pitacco Architect in 2010.
