Virtual worlds make it possible for architecture to be constantly changed and modified in ways that are not possible/practical in the real world. With the advent of collaborative virtual world technologies, we now have a way for us to shape our buildings as we use them. In this video, Jon Brouchoud of The Arch blog discusses wikitecture in virtual worlds using Second Life as an example. Wikitecture in virtual spaces has the potential to liberate architects as well as the users of virtual world architectures from the design-then build-then hope that it works paradigm.
