Kicking off the “Metaverse Metropolis” series, Unfrozen spends a fascinating hour with Andreea Ion Cojocaru, CEO of Numena, and Nick Kauffman, Director of Communities for Spectra Cities. The companies are collaborating to build open-source city-building tools and in augmented and virtual reality, and working to translate the resulting deeper understanding of 3D space to build better communities in the physical world.

Catch Andreea live at South by Southwest (SXSW): From Words to Worlds, March 14, and at “Placemaking Across Realities,” with Spectra Cities founder Ryan Rzepecki at Cornell Tech, New York City, March 21, along with Unfrozen’s own Greg Lindsay.
