This thesis is about the study and exploration of architecture. It is not about the architecture of the physical world, however, and is not designed to be built in physical form. Rather, it is the study of virtual architecture, that which can only exist on-line, in computers, and accessible on the Internet. It is the study of architecture as a spatial expression of society, liberated from the bonds of the physical universe and given new life in its freedom from physical constraints. By looking at physical architecture as a case study of how it relates to the virtual realm, one can examine the strengths and limitations of architecture as a medium for social interaction, independent of its existence in the physical realm.
