This paper focuses on one single aspect of the relationship between cyberspace and architecture: the domain of information visualisation. This field embraces many different approaches to represent data-derived information in a three-dimensional way. One of them, Benediktine Cyberspace, is discussed in more detail. First, the role and importance of visualisation techniques are situated within the context of the information revolution. Second, the cyberspatial principles of Michael Benedikt are described, and finally investigated in a concrete computer application called VR/search. This should illustrate both the three-dimensional consequences as well as the still visionary character of Benedikt’s ideas.
