  • Townships' native follows the Internet road
    com featured one of the first 3 D interactive games on the Internet SPQR a game based loosely upon the Myst SPQR allows the player to wander through a 3 D rendering of ancient Roman seeking clues about a mysterious saboteur The game was an online phenomenon which when licensed to Time Warner for its Pathfinder site initially drew more visitors than its own Time Magazine page GT Interactive distributor of blockbuster games Doom and Quake commissioned the CD version of SPQR for which Muir served as producer employing up to 25 programmers writing code This ancientsites com was a real online community something that had never happened before recalled Muir A faithful online following flocked to the site to play the game At peak SPQR had as many as 200 000 registered The game spawned its own cult following complete with conventions friendships and at least 10 marriages between players who met online In 1998 venture capitalists discovered Cyber Sites and its astronomical stickiness marketing jargon for site loyalty Hoping to capitalize on the SPQR model investors envisaged new virtual communities similar to online clubs on AOL and Yahoo complete with chat rooms games and persistent identities Then came the bursting dot com bubble of 2000 and the flow of venture capital slowly reduced to trickle In March 2001 Cyber Sites exhausted its capital one of countless casualties at the end of a speculative bubble Muir believes that in the end what the venture capitalists missed was that the SPQR virtual community was a phenomenon unto itself fuelled by a hard core group of intellectuals united by a fanatical love of ancient history a passion not easily translatable to less esoteric endeavours such as selling pet supplies On the personal front three of the Muir siblings were contemplating a reverse Diaspora back to their Eastern Townships home Eden s sister Susan Muir an architectural technologist returned from Calgary to the ancestral farm in Stanbridge Station while Vivian a chiropractor moved to Knowlton after living in Toronto In 2000 brother Eden purchased an orchard outside of Frelighsburg converting a small house to his design studio Susan is co partner in Atelier Muir an architectural design company Integrating the latest in digital technology into their architectural design business the Muirs clients can make a virtual visit to their construction site through the firm s Web site view three dimensional models of their project review modifications and see the latest digital photos of work in progress Muir still hooked on the web continues to be involved in Web site design It was while designing a site for the Brome Home Show that he saw the similarities between his own virtual community of the mid 1990s and the structure of small Eastern Townships communities The very thing that draws new arrivals in the beauty and sparse population and isolation also makes it a difficult place to live For Eastern Townships businesses the question of how to reach a scattered population remains an unending

    on the south side two double height spaces and a mezzanine bridge reach out to the light and the view Preliminary design studies exterior view and cut away perspective Atelier Muir is developing a series of model houses for a new subdivision project 3D CAD is being used in the early stages of the design in order to shape the rooflines porches and overall massing The image on the left shows how a library of custom architectural components can be developed columns windows doors etc and at the same time scale devices people pets chairs cars vegetation etc can be downloaded from the web in order to make the rendering more understandable The second image shows how the software can be used to create 2D elevations as well as more complicated 3D images that display 2D floor plans in perspective Sun shadows are instantly calculated for the selected date and time of date Materials such as shingles or clapboard can be easily applied and modified Atelier Muir is developing plans for a youth center in a Townships village 3D CAD is being used to study strategies for the overall volumetric massing and circulation patterns within the four main zones entry administration offices meeting rooms and gym Exterior materials and colours can be adjusted instantly during design meetings with the clients A series of views can easily create an animation sequence that simulates the experience of driving up to the building Transparent views make it easier to visualize interior spaces and aid in fine tuning the position and size of windows The image on the left shows how a preliminary rendering of the building can be dropped onto a photograph of the site to approximate the final result In this cottage renovation and addition project a quick 3d computer model left image was enough to confirm that the roofline concept was on the right track The idea was to integrate the new wing right side with the small original structure left side by matching the roof angle and having the roof planes merge on the far side The 3d model also made it possible to precisely preview the porch depth and window placement This simple computer model was generated in order to study the angle of the pyramidal roof in this 41 square Haiku house which has a continuous 7 wrap around covered porch with no supporting columns The height of the peak of the roof was adjusted in the 3d model with the viewpoint set at the center of the street until the roof slope created the desired visual proportion of roof mass to building mass This 3d computer model made it possible to do minute adjustments of the proposed house and the garage relative to each other in plan and in scale left image The software calculates shadows cast by the house porches and the garage pergola The resulting rendering is superimposed over a photograph of the actual site to give a sense of the scale and context This
