Prior to the experiment an extensive literature search was carried out to explore the relationship between
the design process, visual thinking, conventional sketching (interactive imagery) and Computer Aided
Design. Out of this search a number of design variables were identified, developed and then tested
through a series of observations and interviews with the students while they were engaged in the design
of the Graphic Designer’s Studio. Questionnaires were also administered to students to explore their
views on issues including, using CAD instead of conventional tools, design areas where CAD is most
effective, and how CAD can improve design skills.
Together these features offer a broader horizon to architectural design. New source of inspiration can
be found in virtual reality that makes visible what does not really exist, permitting design to suggest itself
with its primordial image. We mean a kind of architectural imprint, where the first three-dimensional lines
suggest in some way the designer with their shape, and encourage the definition process.
Through the visualisation of some images, it is possible to show the modifications of language and style,
to examine the transformation modalities of the design process and to propose an essay of the new
methods to communicate architecture.
