Description of the concept
Proscenium challenges spatial design by questioning how new tools may distort and misrepresent our perception of reality, exploring the translational values of 2D generated imagery to immersive 3D domains. Virtual space creation often relates purely to 3D but a core practice of the architect is as an image maker, but perhaps we can quite easily inhabit images, reimagining the scaenae frons through the lens of generative AI. The pavilion acts as a dynamic bridge between AI enabled architects and a translation from their outputs to a defiant 2D spatiality.

Exposition in Decentraland
Captivating embodiment of the complex interplay between architectural design and the transformative capabilities of generative AI. Anchored in the heart is a grand staircase, an elegant synthesis of form and function that beckons visitors on a journey through dimensions both physical and digital. It is a careful dance between the familiar and the unknown - the “architects'” office, a focal point atop the staircase, is a composition of space and light, realized through a singular point of view, a singular point of perspective.

Central to the pavilion's narrative is the notion of convergence. Here, in this convergence, the bridge is forged between the generative, digital realm and the tangible physicality of the space. The architects' office is not just a workspace; it's a threshold where human and machine are tethered together, spatially. At the heart of this convergence sits a table—a shared space of interaction and discourse. Here, the architect becomes both a custodian of tradition and a harbinger of innovation.

The Proscenium Pavilion is a play on generative AI imagery and superpositioning of image with form, an array of spatial positions defining points of interest and wrapping spatial conditions. The architect in this situation, signifies a change, a conversation with alternate language models which determine the way we may or may not navigate both creativity and spatiality through the fine tuned LLMs of architects of past, present or future. A conversation with a master or a conversation with a novice, later projected through image and form. It invites us to challenge everything we know about the creation process, and allow it to be transformed as we approach it through the lens of new tools.

Exposition in W3rlds
Proscenium is an amalgamation of tools, a challenge to design processes from 2D to 3D through spatial superpositioning and one point perspectives.

A captivating blend of architectural design and transformative generative AI, the pavilion centers on a grand staircase that merges physical and digital dimensions. The architects' office atop the staircase symbolizes the fusion of human and AI, anchored by a shared interaction table. Convergence is the key theme, bridging the digital realm and physical space. The Proscenium Pavilion redefines creativity and spatiality through dialogue with past and future architects' language models, inviting us to reshape our creative process with new tools.

As “Rem Koolhaas” may, or may not, say, “Witness the captivating fusion of architectural design and the transformative power of generative AI—a symphony where form and function dance in harmony. At the heart of this narrative, a grand staircase beckons, bridging the physical and digital dimensions. This staircase leads to the architects' enclave, an interplay of light and space seen from a singular perspective.

Central to the pavilion's essence is convergence—the union of digital and physical realms. The architects' space goes beyond a mere workplace; it becomes a threshold, binding humans and machines. A communal table lies within, an altar of interaction. Here, the architect becomes a steward of tradition and a harbinger of innovation.

The Proscenium Pavilion is a play of generative AI and spatial arrangements, defining points of interest. The architect here signifies change, a discourse with alternate language models shaping creativity and spatiality. It's an invitation to challenge established creation processes, viewing them anew through the lens of innovative tools.”

Proscenium is a perspective changed by questioning what information LLM’s and generative AI tools can provide, it is formed by image and written word prompts. It is neither original nor a copy but a fine tuned model of dialogue and imagery.
