“So I began to think about Gehry and his ideas of form and beauty as it pertains to space. The ideas behind his aesthetics are unmatched, but the functionality of his builds in RL are somewhat unsuccessful. Therefore, in no other place do Gehrys designs belong more, than in Second Life.
I first began to think about creating a Gehry Inspried design when I was looking for a challenge. Using geometries in Second Life to create an organic shape is not an easy task. So upon laying out the structure for the build, I decided to keep the general spaces of the building open for use, since I had no purpose for it yet.
The building indeed was a challenge, but I feel that it is a success. It is both imperfect in form, and staggering in scale. It is a pure expression of architectural exploration.
The opening for the build will be December 6th at 5:30 PM SLT. I will give a brief 5-10 minute presentation, then everyone can walk through the build.
The building will be available for purchase (and possibly auctioned off) shortly after the opening.”
