The term 'Paraxial' Architecture simply means, an architecture which exists concurrently to, but is separate from, traditional architecture. It refers very specifically to an emerging type of architecture which is very close to but is definitely separate from both the practice of architecture and theoretical architecture. It refers to the architecture of the entertainment industry, and the entertainment designers who design buildings for use in these fields.
This study also explores the idea of the 'hypodigital', or digital space of inhabitation, and the 'pseudodigital', or digital space of representation. It focuses mainly on the hypodigital, and what such spaces entail. Thus by using techniques on space creation learned from entertainment designers, coupled with game technology to create hypodigital spaces, a dual-building expansion is proposed to explore the relationship between the physical and the digital in architecture. This begins to create a dialogue between traditional and Paraxial architecture, its practices and its execution, each influencing the other.
