The role of visual emergence in collaborative design
Computational Support for Distributed Collaborative Design, Key Centre of Design Computing, University of Sydney, pp. 103-115
There are two fundamental approaches to the use of computers to support
collaborative design: (i) to use the computer as a device which increases the efficiency of what
designers could do previously, and (ii) to use the computer as an active device which allows designers to do what
they could not readily do previously. // This paper is concerned with the latter approach by introducing the concept of visual
or graphical emergence as one form of collaboration at a distance that can not readily
be carried out without the aid of the computer.
