Signature Project Title: Virtual Hospitality
Descriptor: Media City (Manchester) Smart Hotel integrating virtual and physical spaces
Humanity is living in a world which is constantly changing, one of the biggest authors of that change is technology, able to connect people and even transport us to different places without having to move. This project explores the idea of creating a place where the user can manipulate multiple immersive technologies to explore an environment that is not limited by its physical characteristics.
Hotels are a temporary home, to live and work, meet and relax. This proposal aims to create a space for visitors to Media City to experience a vision of the future where technology transports the user to a new dimension. Through a fusion of tangible and virtual realities the clients can explore an environment that is not limited by its physical dimensions. Activities, places and times become adaptable to the user needs, be it personal or professional.
