summary Architectural Design Studies is an expanding research area, which recently has experienced dramatic shifts in approach. The successful application of computing to architectural practice has created pressure leading to a rediscovery of Architectural Drawing. The thrust of recent design studies is toward the early stages of the design process, where the modes of conception, human perceptual, and cognitive systems are the focus. In this paper we endeavour to examine the integral role of sketching in conceptualisation. A modelling technique relating to both the design and the graphic process 'sheds light' on the interaction between thought and drawing. Data from a protocol analysis is tested within the framework of the proposed model.
