summary This paper provides a brief history of networked multimedia technology in the United States. The evolution of the Internet and the World Wide Web is outlined. The use of traditional computer technologies byengineering and architectural practitioners and academics is discussed. Use of some new computer technologies by researchers in both professions, including high-speed networks, animated graphicalsimulations, augmented and virtual reality, is also presented, along with a discussion of how they are beginning to be used together on the World Wide Web. Opportunities for refining architectural engineeringresearch, scholarship and practice by expanded use of new networked multimedia technologies are presented. The features of a demonstration testbed networked multimedia package, entitled the FarnsworthHouse Volume are introduced, along with their potential application to some architectural engineering problems. The use of the volume in classes at Columbia University is presented. Advantages anddisadvantages of networked multimedia capabilities embedded in the Farnsworth volume are discussed.
