The Virtual Next Gen Village is a web3d project designed to create a virtual walkthrough of a vision to build a futuristic village in Switzerland.
I met Ralph, founder of NextGenVillage through exploring decentralized cities, DAOs and the Solarpunk movement. I was enchanted by his idea of a sustainable, Solarpunk, egalitarian village and was inspired by his essays that inspired the NextGenVillage project.
My role in this project was to work with the initial concept provided by the team, construct and optimize the 3D model, and add additional details such as roads, highlights, camera focus points for animation and UI placeholders in 3js, we were able to ship it on the official website with the help with another web developer. My role in this project involves mostly project management, UX design, animation and 3d model optimization.
