About

I wrote a blog article about my favorite place in the world, Greenhills. 

Normally, my blog gets around 11,000 views a year. With the blog article about Greenhills, I hit 23,000 views...in less than 3 days.

I hit a sentimental nerve. Greenhills was the favorite destination of many kids and teenagers in Manila. We all shared many special memories and experiences spent in Greenhills. 

The article wasn't even finished. I left out a vital component of the Greenhills experience. I had not yet written about Virra Mall in the blog.

As the views and comments came in, I thought, "Why don't we just bring back the original Virra Mall by creating a 3D Walk Through or a Virtual Reality tour of the place?".

The original Virra Mall was an architectural wonder. Nothing else looked like it in the landscape of the city or the country. It looked like a moon base or a space station in some sci-fi movie.

A few years back, the original Virra Mall had been torn down and a new structure took its place. 

It lost its character, its texture. It simply did not have the same iconic sweeps and tones of the original building. With the tearing down of the former Virra Mall, our memories and experiences came crumbling down with it.

While there is no way we can bring back the old Virra Mall, what if we could reconstruct it virtually? What if we could walk through the same corridors and stores through the magic of virtual reality? That is surely possible! In the Information Age and in the dawn of immersive experiences, this was one thing that scores of generations of Filipinos would want to have again.

Let's make it happen. Let's make it a reality. Fund the Virtual Virra Mall now.

Risks and challenges

Recreating the exact Virra Mall experience will take considerable time, resources, and skill. A lot will depend on the initial draft and the inputs of many people possibly including the former shop and store owners in Virra Mall. Achieving an exact replica constructed from the collective memories of different people will be a tremendous challenge. The basic framework will be a breeze. Giving it texture and bringing it to life will be exciting.
