We build with blocks! And in Minecraft so do you. There are several buildings that we will have to build over the next 10 years while constructing the Freedom Village. Everything including parks, houses, hospitals, movie theaters, etc. This is your opportunity to take part in the design of the town of your dreams.
Growing up in the freedom labs, there is not a day that goes by that one of my wonderful daughters does not come to me with a design for a house that they would like to build in real life for which Minecraft has afforded them the ability to visualize. Even at 9 and 10 their ability to put block upon block and design the houses of their dreams is a reality that is made real by the simplicity of the gameplay in Minecraft. And what amazes me about the Simplicity of Minecraft is that structurally we build with blocks and bricks in real life. The marriage is evident.
So it’s time to collectively and socially begin designing our very real future together. When was the last time that your young child especially those in underserved neighborhoods, were able to design buildings that a real construction company was committed to build? Well, if it sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, it is.
We are seeking for the collective community to design real buildings, parks and structures to be built in Freedom Village. Freedom Village is a Master Designed Community built by African American Founders for over 600 families. The project is fully funded and currently the first home under construction is set to be the largest home in all of Georgia. Freedom Village Georgia the first in several International towns to be built by the Freedom Nation.
There are few differences between the great buildings that you are able to construct in your Minecraft game then what we are able to construct in real life in the Freedom Village. That being said we would like the opportunity for everyone to get involved in designing the structures inside of the Freedom Village. There is no limitation to the amount of structures that are needed to build an ideal Village or small town. From City centers to houses single-family Bungalows, Villas, Apartments, etc. So get to designing and sharing.
