“So far, the Porchdog house is the only one that has been replicated — at least digitally. Clear Ink, a digital marketing company, found the Porchdog design on OAN, and asked Blackwell if they could create a 3D rendering of the plans in the online community Second Life. The result provides a sense of the finished home’s scale and gives exposure to the project. Clear Ink also set up a virtual donation center to allow Second Life users to support the project; the money is real, even if the house isn’t.”

Cameron Sinclair, 2006 TED Prize winner, Executive Director of Architecture for Humanity, co-editor of the book ‘Design Like You Give A Damn‘ and contributing writer for Worldchanging.com will be joined by Sun Microsystems founder John Gage in a live audio discussion in Second Life.
They will discuss collaboration and participation in 3D environments, as well as the newly launched ‘Open Architecture Network‘ – which represents the fulfillment of Cameron’s 2006 TED wish. The event will feature a virtual version of the ‘Porchdog‘ and the Global Village Shelters – both of which are contributions to the Open Architecture Network.
The event will be held on Clear Ink‘s Allston sim HERE (SLurl) on Tuesday, April 24th at 10:00 am PST (SL-time). Installations and live audio stream will also be available at the University Project sim (SLurl), and the live audio can also be heard on Clear Ink Island (SLurl).
