Darren’s work explores the intersection between installation art, design and immersive experiences. His work realigns ideas of virtuality into physical reality, using the work of ZHA to sculpt metaverse structures into real world interventions. The series of collaborative pieces will include performances informed by ‘Architecting the Metaverse’ a collaboration between ZHA and Refik Anadol and a bespoke piece in the ZHA TechLab.

‘Architecting the Metaverse’ at DDP Design Museum, Seoul presented Refik Anadol’s innovative experiments with architectural data both in the physical world and the metaverse using multi-modal AI algorithms to analyse image and script architectural data compiled and composed by ZHA. An immersive experience showcasing the experimental perspective of the metaverse to come, by merging machine learning, AI, and ZHA’s repertoire.
