Information Landscape is one of several courses in which we explore the potential of networked environments to support creative, collaborative design processes. 180 architecture students of the first semester are participating in this course. They work in pairs. The design of an “Information Landscape” is the goal, it is a virtual terrain that is formed by the participants over time and has landmarks that lead to specific information. The location and visual appearance of the more than 400 landmarks help to remember which information is connected to them. The design of the landscape happens in five steps and is related to the tasks in the architectural design class. The collectively designed product can reach qualities beyond the possible achievements of a single person. An environment that supports such design goals must provide for motivation, transparency and support. The common product has to include a tolerance towards fluctuations in the quality of the contributions.
