The art of Minecraft: Building beauty, block by block
Think you're good at building castles and towns in Minecraft's creative mode? Excerpts from ‘Beautiful Minecraft' show what serious talent can do.
Villa La Rotonda
Minecraft, the megahit video game, comes with a creative mode that lets players construct whatever they want from the game's characteristic blocky elements. Many kids will experiment with building houses and castles, but serious creators invest many hours building elaborate constructions.
This rendition of the Villa La Rotonda, originally by architect Andrea Palladio but made in Minecraft by a two-person team from a company called BlockWorks, took a week to make. It's one of dozens of constructions in a new book called “Beautiful Minecraft.”
