In tradition architectural design education, instructor and students share and discuss their ideas through drawings and models. Physical models are hard to be modified during discussion, and it is difficult to view the interior spaces. Drawings, including plans, elevations and sections, are generally used as a medium for the purpose of presentation and discussion. We propose an integrated system to support architectural design education, in which multiple users can not only explore and discuss 3D designs in a VR environment, but also manipulate 3D elements. This system also integrates procedural 3D modeling, providing users with the capability of modifying 3D designs in real-time through adjustments of parameters.
