"The times when architects and other designers embarked on the solitary process of developing a design are long gone. Their work has been radically effected by new advances in Information Technology, which are now allowing individuals from very different disciplines to work collaboratively to develop new projects." "This book provides an introduction to this emerging field of Computer Supported Collaborative Design (CSCD), presenting a survey of recent experiments in computer-supported collaborative drawing and design activities, and assessing their implications." "Digital networking is the foundation for the development of all CSCD applications. This book presents a basic typology of networking upon which collaborative computing systems can be built and operated and is the first book to meet the subject matter as a whole in a single coherent volume."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
