Knowledge communication in the building industry - the knowledge node concept

Abstract: In the paper are given fundamental support to high level structuring and modelling of the building process. The concept of a knowledge node is explained and demonstrated in ongoing research projects together with industry. The enabling technologies accounted for are rich user interfaces in the form of multimedia, the World Wide Web, relational databases, and object-oriented languages as Java. The main conclusions from research projects combining a holistic visionary approach and practical implementations are that the described knowledge nodes with underlying general models act well as both distributed knowledge containers and knowledge communication tools both during the design of the node itself and its later targeted use.
