Madrid’s Campus de la Justicia is under construction in Second Life, but no one can visit and there has been very little press. The virtual campus is described in a September blog post (Spanish language, via Urbanity) as “a three-dimensional space with all kinds of rooms, buildings, streets and open areas, which offer a virtually real image of this great judicial area.” (Translation via Google.)
The real life Campus de la Justicia (which is also still in development) is complex of futuristic buildings (via dezeen). It should translate well to Second Life. Here is a link to a YouTube video promoting the real life Campus de la Justicia.
Although a map view (SLURL) in Second Life reveals that at least some construction is done, it is currently impossible to teleport into any of the four “Campus Justicia” sims, and the sims are isolated by impassable ocean squares.
Since both the real life and virtual Campus de la Justicia appear to be under construction, and it is impossible to visit the virtual version, it could be that the virtual Campus was created for internal use only. If anyone has any information (or even wild speculation) about the mysterious build, please comment or email.
