Below is an outstanding piece of architectural machinima showing the construction and design methodology behind Scope Cleaver’s remarkable build for the Masters of Digital Media.  Scope designed this build based on Architectural illustrations of their soon-to-be realized (real life) Centre for Digital Media.  Their new program is definitely worth checking out.   

In my (admittedly biased) opinion, architecture students would be wise to consider studies in this new program, given the impending emergence of a more intelligent architectural interface; empowered by the augmentative capacity of virtual worlds.  Though their cross-discplinary course work is geared toward entertainment technology, elements of their curriculum nearly parallel what I imagine future virtual architecture courses might include.  Let the convergence begin!
