Preference Given to: 
MArch

In this workshop, students develop independent projects in immersive media as it relates to architectural design and spatial storytelling. We will consider technologies of immersion including VR/AR, web-based experiences, sound installations, and virtual production workflows. Throughout the semester we will explore the field of immersive media through readings, precedent artwork, and hands-on experience with production tools. We will specifically focus on the production pipelines that use real-time simulations and game engines. Students are encouraged to work on the aspects of their studio projects and thesis. The workshop will provide a studio environment for the students to collaborate and provide feedback to each other.
