The Quantum Memory Palace

This project speculates the transformation of architectural space to create a palace where we can wander through the unexplored areas of our thoughts and universe.

Through a series of 'What-if' questions, the project depicts transcended boundaries between the physical and the virtual that create a higher dimension. Architectural spaces have memories like humans; Are they made from human's projected memories? Do they create their own? Do the users become the creator of their own palace? Are they about the spaces that they visited, or do the spaces visit our subconscious?

The project demonstrates the idea of the integration between Quantum AI, Immersive Technology and the Human Brain. Quantum computing would be utilised to process the collected data from various sources, to be visualised later by the usage of Immersive Technology (AR/VR) derived from the human brain capabilities, in which the quantum computing would be the artificial brain of the palace, working both together to create a hyperspace where occupants can access higher dimensions, having the same experience as in physical life.
