// GAGA by Garvin Goepel is an Architectural-Research and Mixed-Reality initiative.
GAGA believes that Augmented-Reality has the ability to enhance human capacities to participate in complex processes through simplified instructions - instead of surrendering human skill to automation in manufacturing.
Augmented construction workflows suggest future abilities to democratize skill through simple and intuitive holographic instructions that do not require professional training. GAGAs research advances studies in collaborative holographic-driven construction, expands opportunities for technology-infused craftsmanship and reflects on workflows that replace conventional paper drawing-based communication with holographic instruction.
