But having them co-present is not the only form of supporting context and expressing relationships between parts of documents. Consider, for example, the work involved in producing a CAD drawing of a building. Here there are relationships between, say, the drawing and several initial sketches of the concept guiding it, between corridors and specifications for the widths, between doors and fire regulations, between a room and various suggestions for furnishing it, between a wall and potential materials for it, etc.

We have developed an early prototype of a 3D computer-based environment, the Manufuatur, to support these work settings. It enables practitioners to place, orient and move materials, and themselves, in three dimensions, analogously to their use of physical space. The aim is to take up the advantages of electronicallymediated spaces and materials while minimising their disadvantages. It enables them to work on materials in the space with their usual software tools, to ‘furnish’ it with a topography, and to share it with others.
