This week’s “Second Life Destinations” video explores the towering Skyscrapers immersive architectural project by Gem Preiz.
Once you arrive, you’ll have the option of taking a guided tour that allows you to take a magical flight through this futuristic megacity via tiny vehicles or simply flying around.
According to the notecard provided in the welcome area, the city was built at 1/10 scale and uses a combination of techniques to give visitors the illusion of a massive city despite the fact that it is built on a single region.
“About 11,000 prims, 500 constructions of more than 100 different designs, 6 transport lines of 20 km in total (at scale), 6 bridges; diversity and excess that evoke but do not equal that of the megacities of our time,” says Preiz in the welcome message that greets visitors. “I hope that you will take as much pleasure in visiting this city as I had to build it during the 6 months of its realization.”
If you enjoy this creation, you’ll want to also explore the many other ambitious projects by Preiz - just look for the teleports in the Skyscrapers region.
