About

At the Design Future Foundation (DFF) , we believe that design has the potential to create massive impact in our rapidly changing world. Operating at the intersection of design & emerging technology, DFF engages with organisations, academia and professionals to explore the impact of design beyond its bracketed boundaries
 

MetaPlay

MetaPlay  is a 6 days long online workshop which investigates the potentials of using emerging technologies such as parametric design and modelling tools, and augmented reality / virtual reality tools to explore and rethink built environment design that is digitally conceived and experienced.
The workshop will operate as a micro design studio that will impart hands-on digital and parametric modelling skills as well as skills in using cutting edge game engine and CGI tools within AEC industry to all participants. Participants organized in groups will be expected to apply this knowledge to design and build architectural scale projects within a virtual environment by the end of 6 days.
The workshop will be curated by Avani Institute of Design, India in partnership with Design Future Foundation and Dezact, London
