Meta-Fluid Studio

The Meta-Fluid Studio explores the quality and power of Fluid Design to conceive cyber-urban environments in virtual cities. The goal is the creation of a free-standing virtual city designed by 30 different designers teamed up in 3s. For this studio, some teams will create meta-archi typologies, and some designers will join skills to create a ‘meta-urban’ base. Combined, they will create a free-standing, fluid virtual urban field and prove the Multi-Author Urban Design to be the directionality for the future of virtual cities.

During this studio, the designers will get acquainted with the 3d modeling software Autodesk Maya – the nr 1 software for Fluid Architecture in the current real-life scenario – and Unreal Engine for the immersive experience of their designs.

For the Meta-Fluid Studio, virtual environments are as real as Physical environments. Together they strengthen the fluid experience of space and push the boundaries of Fluid Design in Architecture.

Meta Archi-Typologies: Event Spaces; NFT exhibitions; Crypto Markets; Concert Stages; Sports Stadium; Lice Streamed Arenas / Fashion walk-ways/ Entertainment and nigh-life.

Meta-urban Typologies: Master planners; vertical and horizontal voided buildings; water and green ration; multi-layers of urban circulation.

Mariana Cabugueira

MARIANA CABUGUEIRA is a Portuguese architect and urban designer working as a senior architectural designer at Zaha Hadid Architects. She also teaches at the Architectural Association DRL in London and conducts live workshops, talks, and webinars with students worldwide.

After graduating from the School of Architecture in Lisbon and the Politecnico di Milano, she traveled to London to study design and technology at the Architectural Association School’s Postgraduate course: Design Research Laboratory (DRL) (AA).

Parametric Design, Generative Design, Digital Design, and Robotic Fabrication are some of her research interests. Her final proposal envisions a cluster of structures in the heart of London that are dramatically diverse but physiologically related.

Mariana graduated from the AA School in 2017 and joined Zaha Hadid Architects. Since then, she has been a member of the Competition Cluster, where she is in charge of the Office’s High-End Design projects.
