At the 2020 VR/AR Global Online Summit, event organizers plan to host their first annual Architecture and Interior Design Student Competition. Sponsored by AEC-focused VR company The Wild, the competition is an opportunity for students in design and VR to showcase their visions for the future of “digital socialization”.

The challenge is to design a space that encourages “digital socialization or innovative social distancing” and examples could be the workplace of the future, an office, a public space, a lobby, entry way, room or building or other architectural space.

Students currently enrolled in an interior design or architecture programs, and especially those with experience using virtual, mixed realities or immersive tech are eligible to apply. Six student finalists will be selected to share their original 3D models in a live-streamed competition.

  • VR headset recommended but not required to apply/participate. To participate, you must have minimum VR headset or PC requirements to install The Wild. Learn more on how to get started.
  • 3D model submission: Revit or SketchUp models preferred; GLTF, FBX, OBJ ok.
  • Be prepared to describe your project. What social interaction does it provide, what was your inspiration, how did you create it, and why do you deserve to win?
