Second Life Destinations – Skyscrapers

Whoa! When and if I manage to log inworld anytime soon, I’ll so go visit Skyscrapers:

Explore the towering Skyscrapers immersive architectural project by Gem Preiz.
Once you arrive, you’ll have the option of taking a guided tour that allows you to take a magical flight through this futuristic megacity.
According to the notecard provided in the welcome area, the city was built at 1/10 scale and uses a combination of techniques to give visitors the illusion of a massive city despite the fact that it is built on a single region.
“About 11,000 prims, 500 constructions of more than 100 different designs, 6 transport lines of 20 km in total (at scale), 6 bridges; diversity and excess that evoke but do not equal that of the megacities of our time,” says Preiz in the welcome message that greets visitors. “I hope that you will take as much pleasure in visiting this city as I had to build it during the 6 months of its realization.”
From the Destinations Guide Description: “Skyscrapers is a magical flight through a futuristic megacity. As this city is built at 1/10 scale, you become invisible for the visit, and you are provided with an “Invisible Avatar” in the welcome hall. You transport down to the city and hop on the Guided Tour (in 10 languages). Skyscrapers provides the illusion of a city of 2.56 km side that you fly around in – or about 100 normal regions!”
