summary This paper suggests that the theoretic framework devised in the late 1960s to help structure the IT curriculum in Schools of Architecture has served the community of teachers and students well but must be re-visited to take proper account of the recent and rapid developments in Virtual Reality and Real Virtuality. The paper offers definitions which differentiate these terms and suggests that the emerging technologies will have a major impact on the issues of sustainability, user participation and creativity. It ends with an appeal for the discussion of the theoretical and philosophical ideas raised by virtuality, and the development of the skills to test them, to be put at the heart of the architectural agenda and curriculum.
