This time we have a particularly visual show for you, that will surely pique the interest of anyone with an eye for architecture and design, in-world or out, as we visit Second Life's Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum, in the region of Usonia.

Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as the leading American architect of the 20th century, with a career spanning over half of it. His earliest work dates back to the early 1900s, while his last design, the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, was built in 1959.

The latest edition of Designing Worlds (episode 73) was extraordinarily fact-filled, in my view. Of course, we always have quite a lot of information in our programmes, but our guests from Bristol University had a great deal to share with us about the Pompeii Court at the Sydenham Crystal Palace and their re-creation of it in Second Life. Do have a look at the show.

This week on Designing Worlds we visit the regions of Al Andalus and in particular the Alhambra, home to some of the most beautiful recreations of historic real-life buildings you'll find in Second Life. In addition we talk to Rose Springvale and Jamie Palisades about how the political system in the Confederation of Democratic Sims operates. The programme represents a great introduction to the region and what goes on there. Click here to view the show.

Today on Designing Worlds we're visiting the four sims of Al Andalus in Second Life, and take a tour of some of the quite remarkable World Heritage sites recreated there, including the castle and palaces of the Alhambra. We'll also discover a little about the philosophy behind these SL regions.

The show begins at 2pm SLT (22:00 GMT) and you can watch live either in our studio at Northpoint, or here at the Treet.TV site - just click the "Watch LIVE" button.

In our latest show we visited Virtual Africa with Alanagh Recreant of Uthango. Alanagh gave us a very spirited tour of several of the main areas in the four-sim region and we all learned a great deal. I would encourage viewers to visit Virtual Africa themselves - there is a lot more there than we had time to show.

Many Frank Lloyd Wright buildings have been created on the grounds in Second Life, including the famous Fallingwater.
