Virtual Architecture as the Ultimate Green Design Strategy?

Just a thought:  Should architects  take  responsibility for suggesting the augmentation of the real-life spaces  they design with virtual world counterparts?  If a percentage of a real-life architectural program can eventually be accomodated virtually, thereby reducing the size of the building, and commuting time, does it deserve LEED recognition?

Future discussions/posts and meetings to follow! =)  Let’s chat it up.

I’m very skeptical about this propsal. Taking this query to its logical conclusion, should a building receive LEED points for having telephones? 🙂

I can’t think of any programmatic space in a building that can be replaced by virtual world space. Furthermore, would we want to? Is it in the greater interests that predicate LEED to have people communicating as much as possible from their isolated cubicles?
