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.
