The second part follows the concept of "Real Virtuality" in the first part. Through an interview with three female architects: Jenny Sabin, Anna Liu and Lyu Chih Lee, and by comparing the accumulated experimental works of the Jenny Sabin Studio, Tokin Liu and D. Z, Architects & Associates, this article discusses the design research which based on people, material, and environment; and additionally, the feasibility of making such design method a new pragmatic norm.
