Mariana Cabugueira in collaboration with Wilder World designed Gaia Tower. This Tower completes the third Island Chain part of the Trinity Islands Project. The Trinity Islands are a genesis project, part of the city of Wiami, a Web3 virtual city that Wilder World is currently building.
Named Gaia, after the Greek goddess of the Earth, its design predicts nature conquering man-built structures. All three islands are fully public and made for Community Building, they are projected as a refuge for virtual Peace and Serenity. The gameplay and Web3 development that is in progress aim for the High-Fidelity experience of space through hyper-realistic space-rendering and space navigation. High-fidelity design in web3 spaces enhances the immersive experience of virtual reality.
Parenthetically, If you are curious to dive deeper into designing virtual cities and cyber-urban environments, you can check the Meta-Fluid Studio 2.0 – Mariana Cabugueira by PAACADEMY.

About Wilder World
Wilder World is a virtual reality experience. The Wilder World platform is comprised of Ethereum, Unreal Engine 5, and Zero. Multiple systems come together to create a new dimension of reality in a 5D, photorealistic experience that is fully decentralized and community-owned, with 100% of ecosystem profits going to citizens.
Wilder World will be a new type of virtual experience for humanity, one that empowers creatives while also rewarding citizens for contributing to the ecosystem. It will first reach the general public through Wiami, the first Wilder city built to become one of the metaverse’s great crossroads, where interoperability and Web3 openness are promoted features.
