The future of gaming is evolving as the virtual becomes more of an experienced reality. An idea that is represented in this new 60,000sf gaming studio through the extraction of physical space as a pixelated organizational strategy. The design approach focuses on assembling a density of various ‘pixel blocks’ types radiating around the central glazed atrium and dissipating outward to the periphery. Programmed collaborative spaces interlock with these blocks to form interactive clusters with visual connections through the atrium and across the space. Resulting mixed volumes are to provide inspiration for passionate developers, designers, engineers, and artists while embracing core ideologies of community, tactility and adaptability inherent in technology.
