Riga in Minecraft

Riga (the capital of Latvia) is chosen to be one of the demonstrator cities in the project Urb Cultural Planning. GeoBoxers created Riga in Minecraft for the Innland University Norway. The map will be used to engage and involve citizens in urban and cultural development as described in the article “Minecraft as a tool for thinking out of the box“.
