An immersive experience

ISPLORA is an innovative tool for the continuing education and professional development of architects, which offers the possibility of receiving credits through the vision of engaging, immersive films. These allow you to immerse yourself in the most important architecture projects through cinematic-quality videos.

The hidden aspects of the design process will emerge, along with the difficulties, the choices made by the designers, the exchanges between the actors who played a role during the execution of the project, the relationships with clients, the requests and objectives set.
The films, which last about an hour, offer a direct experience of the design and construction process of the buildings, following the different work phases, listening to the protagonists’ voice and delving into the process. Through the method of Narrative Learning and thanks to exciting shots and three-dimensional renderings, the course will highlight the context of the project, its different components, the functional and technological solutions chosen. A narration which will finally make continuing education pleasant and stimulating and will allow to attain professional training credits, which will be given after successfully completing the quiz at the end of the film.

The lesson deals with the long design, theoretical and experimental activity of the architect and designer Andrea Branzi. A very diversified professional activity where the project aims at connecting different territories, starting from multiple stories and origins. An independent vision, that of Andrea Branzi, which starts from childhood and from both a family and geographical context: Florence. This city, located on the Arno river, is a very fertile human territory for the architect’s education, on the one hand for the influences and references, on the other for the creative and political experiences.
