A Serious Game for Architectural Knowledge in the Classroom
In this paper we present a serious game on the topic of architecture. The game was developed in association with an architect and is intended to be used in classrooms to deliver architectural knowledge to young students. It focuses on a modular story pattern to allow an easy integration of further game and learning content. With its modern 3D graphical interface it is well suited for illustrating various aspects of architecture.
