Abstract: In this contribution we connect the social turn in architecture practice and education with the innovative possibilities that emerge from the integration of virtual environments (in a broad sense) in design education. We demonstrate the current challenges for architectural education and argue that a critical design attitude will be imperative to tackle the future challenges in architecture. Additionally we claim that critical thinking can be stimulated in a pedagogy that connects back with the initial conceptualisation and theorised possibilities of studio-based learning as Schön (1983, 1986, 1987) envisaged enforced by using new and innovative virtual environments.
