summary The separation of syntax and semantics in systems for the production of architectural designs is discussed. In producing designs we are less interested in mapping between buildings and their meaning than in mapping between an intended meaning and a design description of a kind that can be constructed, a mapping between semantic and syntactic realms. The thesis of this paper is that it is both feasible and operationally useful to separate the consideration of interpretation and syntactic generating in design. The authors first examine the possibility of operating in the syntactic realm, then the possibility of operating in the interpretative realm. Finally they examine how a design system might combine interpretative and syntactic systems
