The ARCH


Thank You Readers! A Week of Community-Submitted Resources! The Week in Review

We had an outstanding range of community-submitted resources this week!  Thanks so much for sharing the inside scoop on these projects, and keep it up!

It all started with Lotja Loon telling us about ‘Architecture and Design Classes: Bauhaus, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Hundertwasser

Then we had a tour of the excellent TowerVision project, followed by my enthusiastic review, “Raising the Bar for Architectural Visualization in Second Life

Theory Shaw forwarded a jira issue related to 3D Model Interoperability, and the group responded!  There is still time to cast your vote!  See 3D Model Interoperability in Second Life”

Then Bennet Dynamo shared an invitation to the Lucien Herve exhibit opening held over the weekend.  It is a great exhibit, and worth checking out, see “Lucien Hervé Exhibit Opening July 12, 1pm PDT

Hidenori Watanave submitted information about Atelier Ten Architects and their new project in Second Life, read more here: “Atelier Ten Architects, “Real” Architects that are now “Virtual” Architects in Second Life

Finally, Martin Purnell informed me of an upcoming Grand Opening of the Future Green Chatham project in Chicago, Illionois which has been replicated in Second Life, Virtual Model of the Future Green Chatham Home, Grand Opening July 18-20, 2008

Hurray for community working together to make things better!

Comment by Bettina Tizzy

I guess reader submissions come in the form of comments? Here’s mine.. I hope I’m in the right place. As a nubey learning how to build in SL, I used a concept that combines sustainability, home schooling and permaculture to learn how to build in SL. I was given a parcel of land (far too coastal for my liking), and about 1000 prims. I built to scale, and as you are no doubt aware, most avs in SL stand about 8 feet tall!! So check your avs height is in proportion to real life. The build uses freight containers, and most of the materials used around them should break down and fit inside the containers. I’m going to relocate the build soon, and preferably somewhere not so coastal. Hope you like it.
