Architecture Club: The Amazon


Welcome to the Amazon, where it rains all the time, treehouses are all the rage and everyone has a unshakable fear of the ground!

If you’re not placed in the Amazon chat channel automatically when you enter, type /ch amazon to join.

Building Rules:
Treehouses: Buildings, walkways, and public spces should be high in the trees, hidden from the ground.
Natural World: Little or no metal or redstone, local materials only.

##Weekly Schedule

Day 1: Housing and Community in The Amazon

Choose a portal and journey into the unknown. When you arrive in a world, please follow the signs to the “Preparation Zone” where you will find environment appropriate suits to wear. This zone will also give you access to ender chests and a meeting space to hear about the days challenges in that world. Also, when you enter the world you wish to build in, make sure you switch to the appropriate chat channel! If you’re in the wrong channel, no one will hear you!

Ok, so you’ve suited up and you are ready to build away. But WAIT, before you start building, take a minute to brainstorm with your team-mates…What is the best thing to build first? What structures are most important for survival in that world? Think about the environment… is there oxygen? Will living spaces need to be enclosed?

  • Build communal housing with 12+ beds, personal storage lockers, bookshelves…etc

  • Build communal eating spaces. This must include kitchens, a pantry, and fridge/freezer rooms

  • Build a meeting platform where community members can gather and make decisions

  • Come up with a tribe name as a group

  • Build a community monument. This monument should be symmetrical and represent the core theme of your world.

Day 2: Commerce in The Amazon - Consider the challenges of an economy in each world and what resources are available to use as building materials or in scientific study, as well as what commodities would be highly valued in each world, and what types of buildings are required to make the economy work.

  • Build gardens and a farm to provide food

  • Build hidden ladders and bridge systems connecting the trees and giving you access to the ground

  • Build a workshop area to make and sell hunting bows

  • Build a fishing dock at a nearby lake. Include a sheltered area that is well lit

  • Build a marketplace in the trees for community trading

Day 3: Transportation - Think about the best ways to explore your world. How will you navigate the terrain and what vehicles would be the most useful to you? Also, think about how to connect all the areas of your city with a transportation system.

  • Build a series of hidden pathways on the jungle floor connecting entrances to your tree-top village, and two different trails leading from the fishing dock to the village.

  • Build a hot air balloon take-off and landing area. Construct at least 2 balloons in the air and one on top of the tree canopy, ready to take flight

  • Construct a hidden railway that runs like a monorail around the tree village. It must not be visible from the ground

Day 4: THE ULTIMATE TEST - Today the entire server is set to Survival Mode! This will be the ultimate test of your designed communities. How will they hold up against natural and other-worldly events? Have you followed the building constraints carefully?

Put your community and your survival skills to the test. Will your society collapse, or is victory on the horizon?

Day 5: Decoration and Closing Ceremonies - Today is your chance to finish and perfect your community’s building projects and celebrate as a team with a grand firework festival.

  • Repair any damaged buildings or structures

  • Make everything pretty! Put finishing touches on communities

  • Build and decorate an area to hold a community party

  • Celebrate builds with firework festival

Welcome to Architecture Club: Holodeck Overview

City Founders: TheTNTSoldier. Camper, YoungYedi91908, DaudaDolphin

Our City was founded on Monday, June 27th. We name it Jungle Springs. On the First day we built a community center, personal houses, began the townhall, built a monument, and began work on the gardens. Today we completed the community gardens, built an outpost, built another house, built and enchanting room, and began a greenhouse. Tomorrow we plan to expand the village and create an outer settlement into the jungle.
