summary This paper targets to report the experience of a virtual design studio called Habitar a Cidade, or Living within the City. From march to july 2004, six brazillian universities. teachers and students groups in Architecture, living in five different brazillian states, were gathered by internet-based communication, and all of their design products have been displayed in specially designed websites. Furthermore, different ways of communicating have been used: messenger chats, e-mails, newsgroups, including the exchange of graphic files. The challenge of this experience was to put in relation schools with inequal levels both in computer equipments and computing design capacities. This paper aims at reading in a very preliminary way the relationship between the use of internet means and the studio.s activities . main goals. As a major conclusion, and despite some organization difficulties, the low cost of the experience and the relative easyness of its development are great reasons to redo it.
