Engineering adaptive Web applications imply the development of content that can be automatically adjusted to varying client devices and user preferences.  To meet this requirement, we present in this paper an audience-driven approach for adaptive web applications called GIWA. GIWA‘s target is to facilitate the automatic execution of the design and the automatic generation of adaptable web interface. The GIWA design methodology guides the designer through different steps of the design process, each of them yielding a specific model that is being interpreted by the GIWA tools to achieve the objective of automatic presentation generation. The GIWA methodology is based on different step: requirement analysis, conceptual design, adaptation design and generation.
