    ABSTRACT

    This paper focuses on the possibility of (re)designing architecture virtually with the help of one of the most important representation tools: Photography. Various digital processes like stitching multiple photos together and mirroring images in image editing software like Photoshop, allow this virtual architecture to take place in virtual environments. Photography can be utilized in the process of 'constructing' a new space - that we can call 'narrative space' - from an existing spatial body. This narrative space can also be defined as a 'manufactured metaspace' which is a space beyond reality and representation: A constructed reality that exists solely in digital realms like Second Life.
