Venice Virtual World
2013 – 2015
This project has recreated the life of Venice; its buildings, bridges, boats, gardens, and inhabitants; in a 3-D virtual environment. The focus is on the now completely transformed zone of the city around the train station. Using old maps, plans, and costume books, students have reconstructed Venice as it appeared in 1740. The outcome was a navigable virtual world and interactive narrative built in Second Life.
