Ascaya City Hall: Constructing a virtual civic image

Part 1 Project 2017

Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL) London UK
The Ascaya City Hall provides a civic centre for a gated community just outside Las Vegas. Responding to the history of exaggerated neoclassical architecture used in American municipal buildings, virtual reality technology is used to propose a new way of experiencing civic architecture.

Informed by research of movement techniques in VR and a comparison between historical murals and contemporary virtual space, visitors experience an architecture where space and image merge.
