Land-based metaverse commissioned HWKN Architecture to design one of its new community hubs, or metaserai, in the metaverse. Paxton is a future-forward design that pulls people to inhabit a new world of culture, community, and commerce. The environment offers communal spaces for hosting virtual events such as concerts in a giant amphitheater, art in wall-less galleries, and meetings in rooms open to the sky.
