Yasmin Asan is an architect, scenographer and multidisciplinary visual artist who seamlessly navigates both the tangible and digital realms.

She has designed remarkable experiences in various metaverses for famous artists, brands and companies such as Tom Sachs, Elvis Presley, ArentFox Schiff.
Yasmin is passionate about emerging technologies, such as AR and VR and aims to make an impact by leading the charge in designing a new world, where reality and digital harmoniously blend together, redefining our way of seeing and experiencing day to day interactions.
“For me, metaverse architecture is not an escape into a fantasy world or a video game like experience, but a direct continuity with social reality. Right now, virtual architecture remains driven by the same human-centric design and functional criteria of organization, aesthetics and gravity. It encompasses everything we learn as architects: form, light, function, to creating an identity of the space/brand, and a scenography of the space: a story. The question is: what could we build without the limits of construction here on Earth and how might that impact the way we create our physical world in the future? We are working to define a new age architecture and even though this is a realm filled with possibilities, we are facing new challenges: an identity revolution.”
