▶︎ Planning Concept

The planning for this project was based on the vision and activities of Mr. KENTO MORI for the current era. The stone circle, which is a symbol of unity and a stage for celebrations that have been held around the world since ancient times, was chosen to represent Mr. Kento Mori's activities of "aiming for world peace through dance. In order to wish for new world development after the Corona disaster, a torii gate was adopted as a symbol of the dynamism of life and prevention of disasters, and the overall space was designed and planned. The overall planning concept was created to convey to the world Mr. KENTO MORI's vision of " #fromJapantotheWorld " and the reaffirmation of Japanese culture toward 2025. We created the overall planning concept to send out to the world.

▶︎ About Unique XR Space Production

For XR LIVE, the most important thing is to create an immersive and innovative experience. To achieve this, it is necessary to create a space design and production design that brings the boundary between the real and virtual worlds as close to zero as possible, and to realize both designs, we have implemented experience production using UNREAL ENGINE. To realize both designs, UNREAL ENGINE is utilized in the production of the experience. In the spatial design process, a proprietary asset-based production method is employed, which has realized significant shortening of the production process and cost reductions, which have been issues in the production of conventional spaces. This unique asset-based production method will enable us to create and utilize a wide range of XR spaces.
