The Guggenheim is a large project. At a scale that I am familiar with, the Erlanger Scale, it will be approximately 100 meters wide and about 60 meters deep. The Erlanger Scale is a scale factor of 1.6x. Remember that the main rotunda in Real Life is listed in many documents as having the dome 95 feet above the floor. Well, translated to SL, this is about 47 meter high. And the Annex Building (designed by Gwathmey Siegel) is 135 feet tall or 67 meters tall in SL.
I did a study of the ramp that winds counter-clockwise up and around the rotunda. As my avatar walked down the six stories and quarter mile path I was at the ground level in slightly over 3 minutes. This translates to a walking speed (more like a brisk trot) of about 5 miles per hour. This brings me back to the realization of the need for a “museum walk” as I have discussed before. This is one of the few areas where I allow myself to complain a bit about Linden Lab not allowing us the controls needed to manage the walking speed of our avatar.
Enjoy your Second Life,
