Encased in glass, a carefully constructed terrarium can sustain a slice of life. At the AT&T Discovery District, a virtual terrarium of local flora and fauna thrives in sync with the seasons, bringing a pristine experience of nature to the heart of downtown.


Created using a real-time gaming engine, Terrarium changes dynamically based on the time of day, month, and even the weather. When it rains in the District, it also rains virtually in the Terrarium.

The tree buds in the spring, fills out in the summer, and loses its leaves each fall – every day slightly different from the last. Bluebells blossom in the spring, followed by Indian Paintbrushes in the summer. Because everything is dynamically generated, the indigenous birds and animals never appear at quite the same times or with the same patterns.
