T.1. The New Normal



May 2020


Graduating at a time of unprecedented circumstances, the Interior Architecture Class of 2020 embraces a paradigm shift to the virtual dimension. Faced with the challenge of designing an exhibition without a space, the seniors adapt an augmented reality application for the Senior Show. The RISD Museum Grand Gallery, the place of European grand masters, is transformed into an exhibition of the Interior Architecture seniors. The seniors’ full-scale Human Factors artifacts occupy the central space of the museum’s iconic portrait gallery, and ten classical paintings host ten new adaptive reuse projects in augmented reality. “The New Normal” investigates the potential of space-making when movement is not possible, adapts and rethinks architectural language in altered design conditions. Importantly, it is an invitation to congregate in new ways, to celebrate the culmination of our time together as a class no matter where we are.

Layers:

  • Each portal represents and showcases the work of each senior

  • The rotating artifacts are a body of work exploring the human body and user experience

  • The paintings on the wall shift from existing European paintings to renderings by the seniors. The renderings are generated in specific painting style according to their placement in the gallery and are crerated through a machine learning application similar to the ideas of augmented reality
