The inspiration behind the ARCHIDEX Online lobby design

Future City Of Tomorrow

Following the continuation of ARCHIDEX Online 2021, the 2022 edition’s appearance is themed to Future City.

The whole future city idea was inspired by the futuristic spacecraft and motherships that focus on curved and wave shapes to embrace advanced technologies. One could only imagine such a future, but how could we bring the vision closer? 

Such technologies are set in the future which enables mankind to travel through time and space that is capable of generating self-sustainable clean energy through the space voyage. 

This idea was brought into ARCHIDEX Online to allow users to experience such a futuristic vision and virtually interact, engage and connect from different parts of the world. The interiors were inspired by the cockpit of a spacecraft and its visual openness supported by structural frames while the pilot is in control. These elements were translated into the futuristic environment of the interiors for users to experience the Future City of Tomorrow.
