Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8091)


Online technologies are already fully integrated into almost every domain of activity. We want to better understand if and how these tools assist groups of people in their architectural conception process. By looking at cooperation, collaboration and coordination moments from the architecturological point of view we hope to associate cognitive operations of conception to the use of certain online tools. The purpose of this research is to build a theoretical model of the collective architectural conception process in relation to the use of basic online tools.
