Video games and design: Minecraft

Has Minecraft changed the way architecture and design is taught and practiced? Since its launch in 2009, Minecraft has become one of the world’s most popular video games and garnered the attention of architects and designers across the globe. More than 100 million people have an account on Minecraft, where they can build their own worlds and inhabit them through play. These fictional worlds empower people to transform their own environments, customise their needs and dreams. This talk will investigate how Minecraft has shifted the way we design and see the world bridging the gaps between design and reality.
