This paper examines the potential resources in the educational process and research methodology in the field of architectural and urban design, by positioning of the Blog as a formal framework of content and representation of contemporary architecture and as a tool that can contribute to the growing complexity of the knowledge base in the field of architecture. In this context, this paper examines two theses. The first one suggests that, used properly, a Blog can become a useful tool in the form and content of the research. This is based on the assumption that reflection of the architectural design process may have a significant influence on the development of architectural education, particularly in the area of information exchange and raising of the critical awareness about the problems of the specific topics in spatial, contextual and formal sense. The second theses encourages the development of blogs as a tool that may extend the interpretive potential of the representation in the... field of architectural and urban design, by displacing it from the real to the virtual space and by giving it a value of the driver and initiator of possible changes. The paper also examines the ways in which the blog can establish, enhance, deepen or direct the already known and reliable methodological and conceptual basis of architectural education on the one side and representation of architectural and urban design, on the other side.
