A futuristic look at Ireland from the team at BlockWorks
Built by BlockWorks as a part of the MindRising 2016 project, Ireland 2066 is a futuristic vision of what a city could look like in 50 years time. The project includes a number of Ireland's most famous landmarks, and sits them beside modern urban concepts and ecological technologies such as vertical farms, automated public transported and energy parks.
MindRising 2016 is a competition celebrating 200 years of the island of Ireland. MindRising champions the use of digital technology in schools & groups. MindRising is about telling stories about our past and our future. Teams will work on their digital storytelling skills across a range of media which includes building elements of their projects in Minecraft.
