Value in the Virtual at Boxen in ArkDes


Welcome to the virtual layer of Space Popular's exhibition in Boxen at ArkDes, Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design!

“Value in the Virtual” explores the role of architecture in the design of virtual worlds. Articulating a direction for architects and designers that interfaces with cognitive science and colour theory, the installation takes the form of two simultaneously active—one physical (in Stockholm, Sweden) and one virtual (you’re here!). See full-scale fragments of Stockholm distort and replicate to explore how material values between physical and virtual environments could and should be radically recast.

You can experience the physical exhibition at ArkDes in Stockholm between September 19th and November 18th 2018. The physical exhibition and its virtual layer exist together, allowing for cross reality interaction.

Space Popular is based in London and led by Architects Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg. “Value in the Virtual” has been curated by James Taylor-Foster.
