summary This paper presents the study of a computer system capable of supporting the information work connected with a design project at an urban scale. The computer system must fulfil a number of specific requirements. First, it must integrate a complex set of instruments for creating, retrieving, manipulating, processing, managing the interaction between the users and the overall information regarding the project. Secondly, it must operate at a geographical level to connect the various actors involved. Third, because of the heterogeneity of the participants involved, it must be compatible with numerous systems, even low entry, to ensure effective accessibility even to small companies, firms and citizens. The computer networks extend the possibility of accessing the information beyond the project employees, towards the citizens. In the computers and in the networks, which connect them, the idea of interaction as communication and reciprocal action is inherent. A result is the possibility of interacting dynamically with the information, of assimilating, modifying, and redistributing it in progress. An high level of accessibility and interactivity with respect to information points to different approaches to architectural design and urban planning.
