WHEN2050: Exhibition at Sydney College of the Arts

Macquarie ICT Innovations Centre invites you to become immersed in an interactive virtual worlds exhibition of students’ visions for sustainable architecture.

WHEN2050 exhibition is part of the Sydney Architecture Festival held at Sydney College of the Arts.  See and interact with 3D projections of future architectural designs and become immersed in a virtual world of students’ visions for sustainable architecture. The students from Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design were inspired by exhibitions at the Venice Biennale 2010. These high school students were mentored by architects, Richard Goodwin and Russell Lowe.  They created buildings that explored future needs such as communication, energy, food, housing, recreation and transport inside a virtual world.

A virtual world is a 3D computer environment in which users are represented on screen as themselves or as made up characters and can interact in real time with other users. These representations are called avatars. Student and teachers learn to design and construct using an open source software called OpenSim

We are also offering workshops to learn how to design your own virtual environment. Check out the events page for more details.
