summary The paper describes the use of a graphic system based on regulating lines and their geometric relations as a qualitatively different medium for shape delineation and dynamic drawing manipulation. It demonstrates how the proposed relations-based approach to design can benefit designers by expanding their ability to speculate about possibilities through dynamic manipulation of the drawing's relational structure. The relational description of shapes is introduced as an explicit formulation of a strategy to form generation and creative discovery. Design begins by first laying out the interrelated regulating lines - its organizing framework. Shapes are then constructed by delineating underlying and intersecting regulating lines. By allowing some lines to control positions and orientations of other lines through geometric relations and dependencies, designers can structure the behavior of the object being designed under future transformations. As design evolves, shapes depicting an evolving design concept can be manipulated and changed dynamically, thus permitting designers to efficiently explore many different options.
