Simploring 2020 (25 A) Mole Lido

For my simploring tour on Wednesday, March 18th, I picked “Mole Lido” from scoop.it SL Destinations because the building on the picture along with entry caught my attention.

Mole Lido

Mole Lido in a plot (rated moderate) on mainland and upon my landing I got a notecard from PixelArt Photogardens, the plot right next to Mole Lido. I visited Mole Lido first but then extended my simploring tour to PixelArt Photogardens.

There’s not that much to see at Mole Lido except of the really outstanding building that is open at all sides. To me it looked more like a memorial. The building is surrounded by a water basin and a modern garden where you can sit and enjoy the view. I explored the builidng itself. “Inside” are three pictures exhibited but they can’t really attract your attention as the building is to dominant.  In the center of the building is a sculpture in the form of a double helix and a wall with a water curtain.

Impressions of the Mole Lido building

I walked up to the roof and had a look around and I explored the little modern garden and sat down there.

Mole Lido is owned by the Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW): “The LDPW will organise teams of resident builders, artists and scripters to create new content for use by Linden Lab, and for the SL community. Resident builders (“moles”) will be provided with specific build projects and will oversee progress before taking ownership of the content once work is completed.

Impressions of the surrounding of the Mole Lido building

Mole Lido was build by Musical Misty Mole (Misty Mole), as far as I understand she’s employed by or a contractor of Linden Labs: “I’m Misty, one of the Linden Moles, building new places and new things. I write music for the moles, including the music for Linden Realms” (taken from Misty Mole’s profile).

For my pictures I had to reduce the drawing distance to blind out the surrounding. Thank you Misty for this very interesting building /memorial.

    Thank you for letting me know about the postand the nice things you said about the Mole Lido, which I built. To be honest I thought that most of the fill-in builds I did for the Moles were gone by now, it’s nice to know some are still in world. I haven’t worked for the moles for some years, but I still build in world in my own avatar as Caliandris Pendragon. I loved the fill-in builds as we were free to build whatever we wanted in the odd spaces we were given to fill. I also did a few builds in the coastal waterways, including the White Islands quest game. I can send landmarks if you’d like them. Thank you!
