summary Paper and pencil sketching, visual analogies, and creativityare intuitively interconnected in design. This paper reports on previousand current research activities of a psychologist (the 1st author) and anarchitect/designer (the 2nd author) on issues concerning sketching andanalogies, and analogies and creativity respectively. In this paper wetried to unite these findings into a combined theory on how sketching,analogies, and creativity interrelate. An appealing theory emerges. It ishypothesized that with no paper available or no expertise to use it,analogies can be used to support the creative process instead of sketches.This theory, however, is a tentative one that needs more research to beconfirmed.
