I am very proud of the project where the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) have worked with Blockworks to release a construction set for Minecraft, themed around the massively influential Architect, Andreas Palladio.

The Blockworks build is very impressive and worth exploration on its own, with in-game images of frescos from Italian Villas on the walls. The "game" has the player placing pre-fabricated walls/pillars/windows/statues around in Creative mode so you can create your own classic-style buildings quickly with most of the heavy lifting done easily. As a bonus there are sample floorplans and a dedicated build area where you can lay out your masterpiece, then go exploring the Blockworks' crafted Italian hillsides.

Have fun building your masterpiece, and remember to post a picture of your building to Social Media with the tag #PalladianMinecraft. Blockworks and RIBA will each select their favourite one!
