Do you want to learn how to build your dream city in Minecraft?
Come and join us in planning and building the sustainable city of the future! A city that has everything that makes it the world’s best place to live.
During the workshop, we enter the digital Minecraft city of Blokby, where we´ll together try to find the best solutions to improve our cities. Does the city lack a place where you can hang out with your friends? Are there enough green areas? And how can we make sure everyone feels safe in the city, also when it’s dark?
We work with all the possibilities of architecture and with the ways architects and urban planners can change cities into the world’s best places to live.
At the workshop, you’ll be designing a new plan and see you ideas come to life in the popular game MINECRAFT.
