Virtual Architecture Display in Second Life http://slurl.com/secondlife/Architecture%20Island/97/129/1173 Virtual Architecture Display and Exhibition in Second Life
Virtual Worlds are entirely built environments even when we use them to simulate nature's wilderness. People uninterested in Real Life Architecture still have to spend time designing their builds in virtual worlds if they wish to create effective environments for working and learning
Architect Keystone Bouchard (Jon Brouchoud RL), known for Wikitecture and notable structures in SL such as the Metanomics main studio, has been thinking about design in virtual worlds for years. He opens his brain to the rest of us in a new walk-through tutorial on architecture principles. For more info: http://bit.ly/fPrjft

The Self-Cleaning House http://web.mit.edu/invent/iow/gabe.html The Self-Cleaning House
Each of the rooms of Gabe's house has a 10-inch square "Cleaning/ Drying/ Heating/ Cooling" apparatus at the center of its ceiling. At the touch of a button, this unit first emits a powerful spray of soapy water over the room, then rinses, then blow-dries the entire area.
After 40 years of work and 68 devices, Gabe is still fine-tuning her house. But the final product is no mere science fiction or fantasy: Gabe actually lives in her patented, prototype home.

Architecture is the activity of designing buildings. Architecture can also mean the style in which buildings are designed.
The term architecture can be used to mean several things, all related to buildings. It may mean the art and science of building, practiced by persons called architects. Or, architecture may mean the actual buildings. Architecture can also be the building style of a particular culture or artistic movement.

The Department of Architecture, established in 1865, is the oldest architecture department in the United States and is consistently ranked as one of the top programs in the U.S.
Notable strengths of the department that cut across the discipline groups are our devoted teaching, the grounding of architecture in both social and material issues, interdisciplinarity, and the remarkable internationalism of faculty, students, teaching and research.

Architecture : 4 2 Explore http://www.42explore.com/arch.htm This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.
