Digital Workhouse

Before the New Poor Law of 1834, workhouses were institutions established to relieve poverty in 18th century England by providing accommodation and work for the impoverished, infirmed, elderly, and disabled. Our Virtual Workhouse project examines historic architecture and furniture, while drawing from archival documents to re-create a virtual atmosphere and experience of an 18th century workhouse. We create 3-D architectural and object models with Google SketchUp and Blender respectively, and use Unity to combine the virtual models into a walkthrough game experience.
