summary Cognitive studies of designers often involve sketching, but studies using artificial intelligence often apply a search paradigm. Sketching is an interaction between an agent and an environment. Perception influences how shape rules are applied, and the application of the rules influences future perception. One motivation behind our work is to computationally model an autonomous design agent that is based on interaction; an agent that can interact with an external representation of a developing design. We describe an interactive model of an agent. In our model an agent has six parts: sensors, perceptors, a conceptor, an action activator, a hypothesiser, and effectors. In this paper we describe our model and a trial implementation involving learning, perception and action activation
