This video is now officially my favorite Second Life machinima of all time (not just because they mention Wikitecture 😉  Their use of hybrid machinima is incredibly well done, and the way they portray the architectural possibilities of virtual space is very inspiring; emphasizing a kind of virtual architecture not exclusively tethered to physical replication, yet navigationally familiar enough to prevent disorientation.

UNIT 13 is an informal unit of the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. It was organized to explore the capabilities of virtual worlds for architectural practice. Unit 13 is currently operated within Second Life.”

Outstanding work, Unit 13!  We can’t wait to see what you guys do next!

Thanks to Dusan Writer for the heads up!

Very good. They see at the school same way that a parallel universe.

like the idea, but the medium above is video, to articulate more clearly you need to improve the video editing. Also, the real world wants you back, we can make the static architecture of the gravity world just as dynamic as this swedish made fantasy , we have the tools.. come back!
