The idea of the creative fake (not forgery) in architecture parallels the ideas of creative faking in other disciplines such as art and design. The idea developed here is to use the vehicle of the virtual world as a device for creative thinking through mature ‚what-if?’ scenarios. This paper explores the potential for virtual architectural environments to be developed in such a way that they can be used in the critical appraisal and understanding of architecture.
