Virtual Assembly

0

Virtual Assembly is an interactive virtual space for Old Kent Road Mosque and MANUK (Muslim Association of Nigeria UK) due to the demolition and redevelopment of their mosque on Old Kent Road in Southwark. Built using 3D software and immersive technologies (VR/AR), the space will combine spatial scanning technologies with drawings, audio, film, and speculative design. The content will be co-created by the Old Kent Road Mosque community through a series of workshops bringing together different narratives of identity to interact, communicate and learn from each other and carry the community (in its diversity) forward. The project also explores the potential of new technologies in the creation of virtual communal spaces/archives, providing a platform for wider engagement on a local and national scale. The Muslim Council of Britain are project partners.
