Due to the extraordinary development of virtual and augmented reality technology in recent years, we expect to soon be spending more time in virtual spaces. Although today a huge amount of thoughts and resources are invested in creating comfortable environments for us, the existence of digital materials in spaces can meet some of our needs, making some of the built physical material redundant. This project examines the expected future changes in the physical world, in view of new virtual materials gaining traction in physical spaces, while understanding that the balance between physical space and virtual space is changing, and that the boundaries between the two are becoming blurred.
