Should the following $115,000 grant in the In-World Content category be approved?
This proposal asks the DAO funding to organize and develop the first Metaverse Architecture Biennale to be held cross-metaverse in Decentraland and W3rlds in September 21-24
Biennale would unite the best creators worldwide to manifest the significance of architecture and design for the Metaverse. During the Biennale, two metaverse platforms would showcase bespoke projects and ideas and become a place to speculate about the future of this new environment, meet co-thinkers and formulate the vision role of the architect in the Metaverse!
115,000 USD in DAI
There is only one decentralized Metaverse that unites all of the platforms, technologies, and communities. This is the basis of our vision of the Industry of the virtual worlds, and this is why we’ve decided to simultaneously run the event on two platforms to emphasize this idea. In Decentraland, a massive town would be developed especially for this event, and from there, you could teleport to the world in the W3rlds to explore even more unique spaces.
- colossal exhibition space in two platforms: Decentraland and W3rlds
- architectural competition open to creators with any experience
- more than 30 pavilions by creators from all over the world
- expositions by well-known architects and designers
- lectures and public talks
- thousands of amazing people to meet during the event
The event will consist of several pavilions designed by well-known architectural studios, and emerging designers selected by an open contest. In addition, there will be lectures, discussions, NFT exhibitions, art installations, and more, so anyone interested in architecture and design can enjoy the event.
We are proud to announce that we have already secured partnerships with top-tier architecture and design studios to become participants and creators of the event, such as Killa Design, Soomeen Hahm, ATRIUM, HWKN Architects, Spaces DAO, PLP Architecture, SA Lab, LAVA, Mariana Cabugueira, Il Prisma, iheartblob, and Illusorr (full list).
1st STAGE: OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Candidates will send three visualizations of the 3d-modeled architectural objects reflecting the theme of the Biennale “Presence of the Future” and a 200-500 words description of the concept. The jury would rate all projects by concept, formal/spatial complexity, and atmosphere (use of light, textures, and landscape). The function of the space is not limited: to an event hall, showroom, maze, etc.
2nd STAGE: FINALISTS PROJECTS REALISATION
All finalists are guaranteed to receive a grant from the organizers to produce the final spaces for the event. All submitted projects will be checked by the technical team and placed on the event web before opening. On the event’s final day, the jury announces the best project of the Biennale, and its creators are invited to become the jury of the next event.
Since the Biennale is advantageous for developing Decentraland and the industry, we’ve contacted the Decentraland Foundation and have already agreed to hold an event at one of the Plazas, which are 20x20 parcels.
We are working on the master plan and public spaces for the upcoming Biennale. After generating several co-ordinally different space structure variants, analyzing each, and searching for pitfalls, we settled on a variant. The architectural city is inspired by green futuristic-fantasy towns, with tree houses and a multi-level communication system between the works of participants and public spaces, which resembles the structure of tree growth.
