A DESIGN FICTION FRAMEWORK

What is [fiction]XR?

[fiction]XR framework is integrated in a web-based platform called AllegoryXR. The framework provides tools for designers to envision and create future scenarios within architectural spaces. It combines storytelling with technology, allowing users to immerse themselves in the environments they create. The platform supports AR and VR experiences, making your designs more interactive and engaging.

Beyond the screen: A glimpse into the future of UX

Imagine a world where technology isn’t just an observer of your reality, but an active participant. Picture yourself using Apple’s β€˜Vision Pro’, a monument of innovation that takes an unprecedented leap into the future of spatial computing. Instead of merely observing the digital world, we’re living in it, interacting with it, and shaping it.

Metaverse and Its Relevance in Design & Architecture

Metaverse blurs the realities between the real and virtual worlds. Architects and designers hold the superpower to transform these digital entities into interactive built spaces β€” only they'll be free of earthly concerns.

Our tools shape our selves

It has become almost impossible to separate the effects of digital technologies from our everyday experiences. Reality is parsed through glowing screens, unending data feeds, biometric feedback loops, digital protheses and expanding networks that link our virtual selves to satellite arrays in geostationary orbit. Wristwatches interpret our physical condition by counting steps and heartbeats.
