The KRAFTWERK VR BERLIN application is a virtual space that intends to overcome the circumstantial limitations of event spaces during the lockdown. With this goal in mind, the project offers a modifiable 3D model of the monumental interior which enables endless artistic and design-oriented possibilities. It is targeted towards creators as much as visitors since it paves the way for immersive experiences beyond the rules of our physical reality. By no means it is trying to replace physical event spaces, but rather complement the range of experiences. Laura Diezler chose the Kraftwerk located in Berlin since their program includes exhibitions, conferences, fashion shows, and art performances that revolve around questions about the zeitgeist and the future. The virtual space is easily accessible with a smartphone and a VR Viewer unbound by time and location.
Being a German communication design student with Colombian ancestry, born and raised in Brussels, I embrace the cultural influences of my background which led me to conceive solutions that can be considered experimental. As I grow into being a full-fledged designer, I try to incorporate the same approach into design by observing various aesthetics and approaches in order to combine and create coherent design solutions for the individual project.
Great Design is defined by the individual balance between aesthetics, functionality, and impact.
Refik Anadol, Christopher Bauder, and my peer Jonas Vogt.
Instead of copying others' work, I would recommend learning from their work and their methodology.
I wanted to explore the endless possibilities and combination of communication channels.
