English abstract:
We present an ongoing initative (the S2 project) to use the Internet toward distributed collaborative performance-based building design. the key features of the S2 environment are as follows: A user can access the system regardless of hardware, operating system or location on a network. Geograhically distibuted users can generate and edit building models via a platform-independent user interface. These building models can then be made subject to concurrent evaluation by multiple simulation applications running on remote servers. Persistent storage is provided for project data and evaluation results. designers using the system have access to multiple libraries with semantic building information.
