The Crystal Palace in SL!

I’m proud to announce that I’ve finally built what I wanted to build ever since I came to SL; the Crystal Palace in SL!
My SL reproduction is „just“ half the size of the original Crystal Palace, but still one sim long, and 1/4 sim wide!
If you have no idea what the ‚Crystal Palace‘ was, please see for details.

Here are some impressions of my SL reproduction (a documentation of the construction progress can be found here, by the way!):

Also, there’s some kind of little ‚game‘ in the fountain well on the north end of the building:

– try to find the leaves that can carry you! 🙂

If you’re visiting the Crystal Palace, you’ll need to set your viewer to a high draw distance.
To be precise, if you’re standing at the very center, you’ll need at least 128 meters draw distance if you want to see the entire building – more if you walk to either side of it. As I said, it’s one sim long (that’s 256 meters!)!

Here’s the landmark to the center of the building:

Hope you enjoy the Crystal Palace in SL; feel free to spread the news about its existence!

Best wishes,

Fantastic here! I’m surprised nobody’s tackled it before. Is this going to be a permanent thing, or just a temporary?

Well, as far as I’m concerned, it’s going to be permanent 🙂

Thank you for mentioning the crystal palace and the Great Exhibition. I dropped by and thought you might like to know that the building still exists in SL, and can be found at
