dc.description.abstract The problem of documentation of design lies in its format. An architect or a designer’s job is to take the words and ideas that a client or a program specifies, and to translate that into a design. This translation is a process of hearing and seeing, then filtering through the designer’s mind and finally outputting that process into some visual or verbal medium to communicate that design and process to those involved in critiquing or investing monetarily. A designer, then, works in the confines of this equation:External Input + Internal filters and Ideologies = Final design output.But does this process leave something to be desired? Does this equation which represents the process of design fully represent that design which it originally intended to communicate If design is, in its raw form, an output of a certain undefined ‘design process,’ couldn’t the final design be better represented if that illusive process were better communicated? I believe the answer to these questions is undeniably, ‘yes.’
