Designed by Aboudi Hassoune
The architecture design of the VR Pod is inspired by the fusion of ancient Egyptian architecture with a futuristic and contemporary approach. The exterior structure is inspired by the Entrance of the Tomb of Sennedjem. It features a rectangular entrance with a pyramid chapel for the worship of the deceased.
Our objective is to build an installation that attracts the eye with a portion of the pyramid illuminated and glowing. Each side of the pyramid has a different usage. The front entrance rectangle is the onboarding area, the right side is the registration desk. The back rectangle will feature a TV screen for multimedia viewing for bystanders and the left side features description of the project. The Pyramid shape is achieved by creating four identical pyramid bases and two large rectangle frontage. Above the base, the structure features eight aluminum truss that converges in the center to create the pyramid shape topped by an illuminated capstone.
