Make Your Own World: How to be an Architect
Come and meet some people who can turn imaginary worlds into reality – virtual and actual. How do they do it?
A young wannabe architect (10yo) and an architect will show you how they bring worlds out of their imagination and into – virtual – reality. Using Minecraft and professional architectural 3D software, they will take you on a tour of a world that only exists in their heads.
And how do you make imaginary worlds real? Have a chat with the people who do it every day. An architecture student, a recent graduate and an architect will tell you about what they do, how they do it and how you can do it too.
