title The VIPA project - some notes on the pedagogical approach to design education using active 3d worlds

summary This paper should be seen as complementary to the other papers by Mullins et al where the EU VIPA project is described. It is the intention of this paper to deal solely with the educational aspects of using computers in architectural education, which of course is the raison d’etre of both ECAADE and the VIPA project, but on this occasion to look at the earliest models of this, to revisit the pioneers in case we have forgotten something and to see in what way their original aims were achieved and how their self proclaimed task can be transferred into the current situation. It is the intention of this paper to argue that Papert and Kay’s use of the computer in education still has many useful things to say in the context of vipa. The general approach is fundamental to the VIPA project and will inform the ongoing design of the scripting and modelling platform, based on Smalltalk / Open Croquet, and Blender / Python.
