-EDITORIAL PICK of Videogame Architecture: 2 Drawings Competition


In the world of videogames, there are no limits of reality, everything becomes possible, which enables us to rediscover the existing architecture from a whole new perspective.

My favorite videogame is Monument Valley, which is an indie puzzle game illustrating the journeys of the player character Princess Ida. The building is disassembled into different masses. The central mechanic from the game – the interactions like moving platforms – is applied into the building. This allows people to manipulate the character and interact with the environment to find out the hidden walkway to move through the building from one point to another.
