(Un) lost architecture 
an nft project on heritage buildings

Project Type: Research, Curatorial, Product Design

Status: On-going

Lost Architecture is an NFT project that re-creates demolished historical architectures in the virtual world. Proceeds will fund research and conservation of historical architectures in Hong Kong. Thanks to the birth of metaverse, architectures that are otherwise gone from our sight can be navigated in the virtual world. Their timeless existences are restored in the blockchain universe for the public to view, appreciate, study and remember. Our understanding of historical architectures will be redefined to engender another dimension of spatial memory.

 

The first batch of Lost Architecture series consists of five NFTs which will be released in the first quarter of 2022. Each product comes with a 3D model (in the format of .stp and .obj), as well as a high-resolution JPG, which can be displayed with Looking Glass Hologram, Samsung Art TV, or other similar displays for digital artworks. Net proceeds after deducting costs and expenses will fund research and conservation projects of historical architectures in Hong Kong.
