Shaun McCallum is a Scottish architectural designer and digital artist whose work investigates the impact of new technologies upon socio-political cultures through ephemeral architectural objects and installations. He received his Bachelor of Architecture, with Distinction, from the University of Dundee before studying at the (Sci-Arc) Southern Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles and graduating with his MArch at Die Angewandte in Studio Greg Lynn. His projects which explore the accessibility and integration of digital technologies within existing physical structures have received a variety of awards and have been published internationally. As a researcher, Shaun has served as a travel fellow in China investigating the interplay of mystical historical ruins juxtaposed with new consumer lead architectural objects and under occupied mega cities. With his interests in hybridised realities Shaun has taught workshops on augmented reality and virtual reality through experimental workflows.

focus

The world of architecture is no longer purely physical and architecture must begin to question how architecture can blend between the physical and digital developing a mixed reality architecture. The core focus of my work is in the development of real-time environments which merge both the physical and digital environments we occupy in our daily lives.
