Venice Virtual World

Kristin Huffman, Nicola Lercari
Fall 2013 - December 2014

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, to be completed in December 2014, will be a navigable virtual world with digital storytelling.
