Using Augmented Reality [AR] to make hybrid architecture books

With the aim to expand the contents of our books, we're working on the concept of "hybrid books" by means of using Augmented Reality interaction. This time we're featuring the book Weaponized Architecture by Léopold Lambert.

The book is an examination of the inherent instrumentalization of architecture as a political weapon. Including expanded contents with Augmented Reality [AR] interaction, as interviews with Bryan Finoki and Raja Shehadeh as a complement of paperback edition. Every reader will be able to see more than twenty five images with augmented reality layers, enclosing added information, such as videos, web pages and animations.

This was rendered possible with Aurasma, an application which combines image recognition and a conceptual understanding of the 3D world, to recognize objects and images and seamlessly merge augmented reality actions into the scene.

Comming soon the Weaponized Architecture mobile-book with an integrated layer of Aurasma to make possible that every reader with a smartphone can have access to the extra features.
