Event description




The Infinite Dimension is a two day fun activities, an AR & VR workshop followed by a seminar and an exhibition the next day that is open to public.

This will be our second VR Workshop after a successful one last year, where Mars architecture, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and experimental parametric architecture collide in a ground-breaking event. The rendez-vous of all these multi-disciplinary creators, thought visioning our parametric design research, using Mars habitat as an experimental subject, have opened access to an infinite dimensions beyond a 3-Dimensional features in Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.

Public with a basic AR/VR or 3D model design skill are encouraged to join to gain new skills, expand the network in this industry, and meet the unique visionary leaders in the space and entertainment field.

Main Workshop Content:

To integrate immersive technology in the design and visualization of the students’ habitat design, related to the 3D Printing technology and the nature of Mars, while also testing their newly acquired skills during SCI-Arc’s Introduction to 3DEXPERIENCE (CATIA) seminar, a crash course in the design of complex geometry and adaptive systems. In a professional context, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is used by leading architecture firms to enhance building performance and constructibility. These two factors, which are critical for the design and delivery of architecture here on Earth, will play an essential role in any future Mars colonization effort.

Architects designing for Mars need to address these performance demands while envisioning a new architectural identity for humanity’s settlement on an alien world. This workshop aims to explore this question by creating a new language or architecture that blends the stringent engineering requirements of interplanetary habitat design with the more qualitative human factors that define Architecture and enhance the experience with VR and AR tools.


This is NOT a Competition but we do offer some Prize per our sponsors and collaborators to call the best creative and passionate people to join our effort and community. The Selected team's project will be EXHIBITED at the Mars City Design - NASA Johnson Space Center, an exhibition dedicated to our US Veteran and Astronauts and their family and friends. Their selected most favorite project will be published and the team will receive a Mars City Design poster with the invited Astronauts' autographs.
