One of the great challenges of architectural education is to teach students how to communicate with other project participants. Communication is critical not only within the design team, but also with outside participants. This year, 4th year architectural students at Ball State University engaged in a unique 12-week design problem on the remote island of Utila, Honduras.1 This project used basic computer technology to create a dynamic communication forum between the U.S. and Honduras. It also afforded an opportunity for students to use both computer generated and traditional architectural models to gain a deeper level of understanding of the relationship between design and construction.
