Via arcspace.com: “The work of Asymptote includes architectural design at all scales: furniture, interior, building and urban design but also extends beyond these into the realms of digital environments and installations…The Virtual Trading Floor for the New York Stock Exchange and the Guggenheim Virtual Museum are fully navigable interactive multi-dimensional architectural environments.”
