A re-visioning of Bruno Taut's 'The city crown' and Peter Corrigan's 'Building 8'


Using Minecraft as a visualization tool, traditionally a PC game that allows the user to construct a world out of textured blocks,'Crownie' re-imagined Bruno Taut's Die Stadtkrone (The City Crown,) Peter Corrigan's iconic Building 8 on Swanston Street.

Our response ultimately aspires to a contemporary interpretation of Corrigan's work. Ideas of innovation are explored in terms of software and the creative appropriation of software designed for interactive entertainment as a design tool.
