title Cognitive Role of Ill-Structured Representations in Preliminary Design
source Visual and Spatial Reasoning in Design, eds. J. S. Gero, and B. Tversky. Sydney: Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition, University of Sydney
summary I have previously argued that cognitive processes involved in preliminary design require "lateral" transformations or mental state shifts, and that "ill-structured" mental representations are necessary to support these transformations. I review the argument and provide additional support for it by appealing to some neuropsychological data.
