Happy Place Decentraland design competition

Submission: January 01, 2023
Registration: January 01, 2023
Language: English
Location: Global
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open


Our mission is to promote the uptake and implementation of simulation architecture in resolving human issues. We believe that we all have the power to create digital solutions to enhance the human experience.

Our focus has increasingly fallen on addressing wellbeing and mental health. We would like you to design a

garden which will house our meditation pavilion. This can include interesting landscaping, environmental design, an adjoining architectural intervention or whatever you see fit to create a “Happy Place”.

Our assigned plot is 16×16 and we recommend blender, maya, cinema4D, 3dsMax or sketchup as the main design tools as we have polygon limitations. Please export the model as GLTF or GLB. We are willing to help the winner with possible conversion issues. The design is to be simple, effective and transportive.


Low-Poly 3D Modeling
The building model must have a form of building that does not obscure the other plots, such as a building with a narrow base but has a large roof (hammer shape). The size of the model placed on must correspond to 16×16 a single metaverse plot.
