The ARCH


Upcoming Event: July 9th at 2pm SL-time (PDT): Tour of TowerVisions

If you are even remotely interested in the use of virtual worlds to augment the professional practice of architecture, you won’t want to miss this!

On July 9th, at 2:00pm SL-time (PDT), Bernd Bötzel (Vision Planer in SL), architect, project developer and managing director at DU Diederichs, and Hana Lundquist, leading architect and SL developer, also at DU Diederichs, will give us a guided tour of a design concept they developed and replicated in Second Life for the adaptive re-use of Bethanienturm, a church that was heavily damaged during World War 2.

The project, called ‘TowerVisions‘ is the collaborative effort of DU Diederichs (a German project management firm), Anshe Chung Studios (a content and real estate developer in Second Life), and Planufaktur (the development firm developing this project).

If you haven’t already seen this build, I highly recommend taking the time to check it out!  It is truly one of a kind!  Next to the Palomar and aLoft builds, this is definitely among the largest scale and highest quality examples demonstrating how Second Life can be used for real-life design visualization.

HERE is the SLurl (teleport directly).
