summary The transition of architecture from the two dimensional nature to the three dimensional nature, which results from the use of digital media, generates deep inconformity between the traditional methods of architectural creation and the novel nature of architectural objects. Therefore, there is a need to look at how digital media can impact the design capabilities of architects. This research aims at identifying the impact of digital media on the Knowledge Building and Retrieving capability, through defining this capability and classifying the basic approaches of digital media used in the design process. Depending on both primary data (a global questionnaire) and secondary data (synthesis of the previous research), the results of this study have substantiated the observation that there has been positive impact of various media settings (manual and digital) on the Knowledge Building and Retrieving capability of architects.
