In the field of architecture, researches are being conducted for the issue of combining VR environment and procedural modelling. Instead of simply using VR as an visualization tool for procedural modelling, as in other researches, we argue that manipulations of 3D elements and adjustments of design parameters should be implemented in VR to provide further supports for a design process. An integrated system is thus proposed based on this augment, with a special focus on architectural design education. This paper presents the design of such a multi-user system, in which 3D modelling, procedural modelling and VR platform are integrated, aiming to support architectural design education.
