summary Designers do many things that computers don't. Some of these are bad habits that the stringencies of computation will correct. But others are basic to design, and cannot be ignored if computation is to serve creation and invention. Two of these provide the correlative themes of this paper. Both are concerned with description, and its variability and multiplicity in design.
