Today’s society is growing, moving, pushing and pulling in so many different directions. Society has moved from the invention of electricity in the 1800’s to the invention of the iPhone, which has changed the way we use, and perceive technology today. The survival of an architectural student depends on being able to communicate multiple drawings, graphics, images, diagrams and more in the most productive method. Each phase in design requires a clear and concise conversation between the designer and the observer. Schematic Designs generate some of the most creative ideas during a projects progression. With this understood, this section of this paper will analyze the introduction of Second life to students, professionals, and clients of architecture in a virtual simulated environment. The ability to demonstrate a design solution to a professor or another student across the world will truly increase the effectiveness of collaboration, critic, and cooperation. This applied research paper will analyze the application of Second Life in architectural education, communication, and creative design solutions.
