Habitats represents a first-of-its-kind research project powered by SHoP Architects, a world-class architecture firm, that will use the Metaverse as a proving ground to innovate and design smarter in the real world.
Habitats believes the Metaverse is viable and we are committed to assist in it’s growth. We intend to build off our design for communities in the physical world and extend that commitment to better online spaces. The Metaverse provides a platform to enrich and engage communities that we have not been able to in the past. SHoP is here to learn and shape its future.
How a Habitat is experienced is ultimately up to the user - which is why each Habitat grants access to a downloadable model file that can be integrated into a range of leading Metaverse platforms.
Our work is the future and with Habitats we want everyone to be a part of it. Join in on the discussion, as well as planned events, to help guide what and how we build in the Metaverse and beyond.
Funds raised through the Genesis collection will go back into further research of new design methods and tooling for both architecting within the Metaverse as well as bridging the gap to the world outside.
Genesis Habitats will launch with a generative collection of 2,500 NFTs living on the Ethereum Blockchain and hosted on IPFS. Each NFT will represent one Habitat, a fully-formed 3D structure that can be integrated with multiple Metaverses.
Habitat generation was informed by machine learning algorithms developed by SHoP, which learn from a manual design process. Each new generation will improve from the last, with Genesis being the earliest version.
Habitats is exploring different avenues of research and their associated value propositions. Some initial areas of interest are 3D NFT collections, virtual real estate development, virtual design services and consulting.
