The system allows many users to view three-dimensional objects, change attributes of the objects, discuss
and design at the same time. These users can be located in different parts of the world. Each only needs a
computer that is connected to the Internet and a web browser that can display VRML objects to use the
system. The computer can be any hardware platform running any Operating System.
The objective of this project is to develop a system that can run on any computer hardware and software
platform. Without any limitation on hardware and software platform, people from different parts of the world
can work collaboratively to design architectural objects.
Cyberspace is an electronic extension of this cognitive space. Designers of virtual environments already
know the power these spaces have on the imagination. Computers are no longer just tools for projecting
buildings. They change the very substance of design. Cyberspace is itself a subject for design. With
computers architects can design space both for physical and non-physical media. A conscious integration of
cognitive and physical space in architecture can affect construction and maintenance costs, and the impact
on natural and urban environments.
This paper is about the convergence of physical and electronic space and its potential effects on
architecture. The first part of the paper will define cognitive space and its relationship to cyberspace. The
second part will relate cyberspace to the production of architecture. Finally, a recent project done at the
University of Michigan Graduate School of Architecture will illustrate the integration of physical and
