After a history of CAAD in the Netherlands, the author describes the CAVE-like facility that is being set up to support collaborative design. The first prototype, Protospace 1.1 has been tested. Protospace is a project of the Hyperbody Research Group, directed by Prof. Kas Oosterhuis. The state of the art of parametric design and some helpful tools to speed-up the design process are discussed. 3D multiplayer game software Virtools is used to develop synchronic and a-synchronic, local and inter-local collaboration.
