Augmented architecture : public space in a post-digital Vancouver Le Quellec, Philippe


This thesis challenges the current state of public space. Living in a postdigital world, our experience of public space has shifted exponentially. In our physical world we are bound to gravity and experience public space as the nolli map of the city. In our digital world we become untethered and experience public space as the extents of our smartphones. This project re-imagines the architecture of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza in Vancouver. This public space becomes a new interface for creating and interacting with digital landscapes in the physical world.
