(AR)chitecture



(AR)chitecture brings Zaha Hadid’s Planetary Architecture to life through Augemented Reality. 3D models of the buildings are superimposed over her drawings through a mobile application.

Hadid’s Planetary Architecture is archived in the KSA Special Collection archive. But is her work really archived? How can you preserve architecture within an archive without damaging a fragile and rare artefact? My solution is Augemented Reality. It shows the depth and dimension of her Architecture, without altering the publication. This, unobstrusively, brought the spirit of her work to the archive.
