1. Challenge facing today:
The involvement of digital technology into daily life of people, for instance social media and virtual reality, is increasing day by day. However, architecture, as one of the most important elements of human society, seems does not evolved well with the adaption of social media and digital technology, which will definitely bring more and more impacts to human society.
A new way of combining architecture and digital world is a trend in the future.
2. Proposed solution:
The introduction of augmented reality will totally change the future architecture. With the development of digital glass, future architecture could be purely white on the reality but highly customized into individual's need or favour. The space is defined by the builder, but the atmosphere and content is totally adjustable and highly customized to individuals even they are experiencing the same space.
Even more, in the future there should be digital architect which focus on creating digital architecture in between the real world and digital world. The perceived world is no longer merely physical but a mixture of reality and augmented architecture. The impact of digital introduction is not only changing the way of a building looks, but also saving a lot of material and creating many impossible architecture, such as flying building, alien building, or even travel to a foreign country in a second by visual projection!
