the simulacrum of restoration

A collaboration with angus carlyle and the illustrious company

The Simulacrum of Restoration aims to recreate the lost histories of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, one of the cornerstones of modernist architecture, in an interactive 3D surround sound and 2D visual environment.

Utilising advanced auralisation - the auditory representation or "imaging" of data - technologies, the project will present the building’s extraordinary history and cultural impact.

This project converges the traditional practice of the architectural blueprint with the dynamic and experiential techniques offered by auralisation and aims to develop new approaches towards the immersive experience.
