CHALLENGE[02] Build Beyond ReadMe

Welcome to Arkio’s Design Challenge, episode 02! This challenge is going to be an exciting one, so lets dive right in :slight_smile:

For challenge[02], Build Beyond, you will need to tap into Mixed Reality to build a modification to an existing space. Mixed Reality (MR) allows Arkio digital models to mold and overlay with our physical world, giving us a new spatial power to use for experiencing and designing.

:package: About

Since MR is a blend of physical and digital, Build Beyond will be broken down into these two pieces.

First, you’ll need your context. Each participant will be required to find their own site and/or building to model off of. This can be your room, school, favorite store, future home, it’s up to you!

Second, the design! Modeling with mixed reality will require each participant to be in their chosen physical context and model an expansion/subtraction/addition to an existing building or space. Dive into your architectural vision and aim high! Maybe your room needs a second level, or your house needs a new roof, or your town building needs a modern addition… ideas are endless!
