Architect Studio 3D

I like Architect Studio 3D. You can design a house à la sims but at the same time learn about archtecture. Especially if you haven’t played the sims I imagine this exhibit/learning tool as very successful. I don’t know much about architecture but I imagine that this site captures the work process well, by trying to make you think like an architect in a pedagogical way. It has a good structure, the site. 

The creators explain:“Architect Studio 3D offers a unique opportunity to explore architecture and the design process by designing a house online—and then touring it in 3D. With Frank Lloyd Wright as your guide, you first review the needs of your client and the particulars of the building location. Then start designing, taking your ideas from floor plan to final 3D model. Share your house design with the world in the online gallery, and discover Wright’s own story and his innovative buildings. ArchitectStudio3D provides students with a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of architecture and the design process, and to learn about Frank Lloyd Wright and his innovative work. Designed to appeal to the interests and abilities of 11-14-year-old users, students will experience the creativity and challenge of being an architect, while at the same time gaining practice in skills related to national education standards in math, social studies, language arts, and fine art. The site allows students everywhere the opportunity to experience the “learning by doing” that makes our on-site Youth Architecture Workshops so popular. Addressing various learning styles and demands of curriculum, is a great teaching tool that is both challenging and satisfying.”
