||This paper shows how hypertext, an electronic information transfer medium, can assist buildingdesigners access the large volumes of architectural and engineering technical information needed in decision-making phase of building design. A technical paper on architectural details serves to model the capabilities of hypertext. This example consists mostly of graphics and illustrates how the hypertext medium could act as an information source for designers in the construction industry. The objectives of the paper are to illustrate the potential of hypertext to create, disseminate, and access technical information, and to identify an electronic format for construction industry technical publications. The paper identifies the capabilities of the medium, some advantages and disadvantages of hypertext, and the potential of the medium for construction information transfer. The author suggests that hypertext systems can assist technical information transfer in the construction industry.
