summary Architectural designers take part in two complex cultures: a parent culture that affects their overall view of the world, and an architectural subculture that orders the details of their work. With assistance from writings in contemporary philosophy, this paper analyzes aspects of both the parent culture and the subculture as they concern design processes and media. The analysis uncovers assumptions that normally assign such processes and media to a secondary role in which they to a secondary role in which they serve only as neutral and transparent skills. By constructing a set of alternative assumptions, the paper proposes a new, primary, role for design processes and media - a role that enables them to act as intentional and substantial generators of form. These alternative assumptions challenge deeply held beliefs, but examples show that when they are employed experimentally in computer-aided design, they reveal new possibilities unique to digital processes and media.
