Abstract

The paper reviews the author’s professional work and academic research as an architect and scenographer on the Metaverse of Second Life, known as a collective virtual shared space, with the aim to establish the role of architecture and heritage in the digital built environment. The research utilised a design methodology that considers historical archetypes of architecture as ‘elements’ individually characterized, which can interact with each other -as in a language- generating new elements. Case studies illustrate these new architectures derived from a critical interpretation of heritage architecture, which developed the sense of memory in the virtual world.
