I can’t express how refreshing it is to see Scope Cleaver’s work recognized for the masterpiece it is. Scrolling through, you’ll find IM Pei, Norman Foster, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Zaha Hadid, and now… Scope Cleaver.

The [Princeton] Gallery of the Arts is distinguished by its irregular profile, a soaring superstructure that supports and defines the light-filled interior.”

Way to go Scope! Making SL look great, and continuing to raise the bar even higher…

The Bartlett House

If I had to isolate the most commonly held concern real life architects have with building their projects in Second Life, it’s that the building tools are too limiting. They claim that realistic architecture is difficult, or even impossible to achieve using the in-world building tools.

While I normally reserve the content of this blog for topics related specifically to real life architecture, I see the Bartlett House as one of the finest examples of virtual architectural representation I’ve seen so far. This build goes a long way toward describing the level of detail and expressiveness this medium affords, and clearly raises the bar for architectural representation in a virtual world.

Charlotte Bartlett chose a brilliant mashup of rock star contemporary virtual architect Scope Cleaver with the champion of contemporary furniture, Maximilian Milosz. Visit the build on the Elysian sim, which is now open to the public.
