Design participation through the Internet: a case study
arq . vol3 . no 4 . 1999
Cambridge University and Microsoft are planning a shared computer research and teaching laboratory on a green-field site to the west of the city. The clients wished to use internet based communication between themselves and their architects, including email, a web site and virtual reality. We explain how this is to be achieved, and describe experiences during the first half of a two-year project. Particularly successful has been the use of games software (QuakeII) for 3D presentation of the emerging building design.
