Second Life: Research project
Thessaloniki - invited
Second Life is an ongoing investigation into the role of architecture inside online communities, and how those online conditions and particularities form a new internet inspired architecture. When you design buildings in these online communities, by default you are blurring the boundaries between design and construction: Your design begins to be inhabited even before you are finished working on it, while there is no construction phase: What you design is already built, instantly realized. More than just blurring the boundaries between design and construction, these communities offer the architect the chance to interact with a new typology of client: Easily bored, he or she can just cick away and never see your building again, if it does not manage to capture their very short attention and fickle interest.
