Architecture digitalization is having a huge impact on the lives and work of architects, allowing them to create and deliver their message to potential clients in an increasingly efficient manner. Working in partnership with the revolutionary virtual reality software company Vividly, Bee Breeders are looking to explore the capabilities of this digital tool to create a virtual reality based exhibition gallery to be known as the Archhive.
For the "Archhive: Architecture in Virtual Reality" competition, participants are being tasked with designing the virtual exhibition gallery in which to showcase Bee Breeders' architecture competition winners. This digital hall of honour would exist entirely online and would allow visitors from all over the world to “walk” around this virtual gallery and explore the work of the selected competition winners, as well as occasionally invited guest contributors.

This competition allows architects to work with any digital 3D modeling tools they choose, and since the exhibition space would exist solely in virtual reality, there are no construction restrictions. It’s all about the virtual reality's architectural spatial quality.
The selected winner’s project will be realised as a new media project - digital architectural space archhive.io - providing significant publicity for the designers of this virtual gallery. The Archhive is being planned as a large scale media project that will run indefinitely, launching soon after the completion of the competition.
