Computer-supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) introduces new technologies which are meant to support people in their need to communicate and to exchange information. The paper focuses on systems which support the cooperative work in distributed design teams. An architecture for a distributed system environment and the corresponding, prototypical implementation - the CoConut System - are presented. Three components of the system are described in more detail thus giving an overview how existing environments can be enhanced by new, cooperative technologies.
