FACTORY FIFTEEN is a creative studio based in the UK that specializes in film, animation and architectural representation. Their disciplines range from architecture and architectural visualisation to engineering, animation, film making,  and photography. They research different methods in which the built environment can be recorded and augmented through film, using experimental tracking and animation techniques to communicate their visions.

They have produced this magnificent and surreal film surrounding the virtual concept of a downloadable architecture.

Sequel to the award winning GOLDEN AGE – THE SIMULATION, ‘SOMEWHERE’ attempts to visualise the notion of a ‘downloaded architecture’. We are in a time where much of what we do is online. The notion of the online will radically change, the notion of the computer and the home will merge. We will download parks and places to relax, have skype phone calls with simulated telepresence of our friends and family, be immersed in nanorobotic replications of any kind of objects or furnishings downloaded on credit based systems. The local becomes the global and the global becomes the local. Consumer based capitalism would change forever.

A truly ‘glocolised’ world.
