Shaping Design presents a wide range of creative design documents from architectural practice. Following the processes from analysis to final design, these manifestations form continuities. In many cases, the tools, ways of thinking, and approaches used are deeply interrelated. Overarching features, as well as the specific characteristics of individual instruments and methods of interaction, are introduced and exemplified. In doing so, the authors explore the potentials of hand drawing, language, geometry-based representation, model, diagram, mapping, photography, collage, and tableau for investigative creative analysis, as well as for generating, evolving, and transmitting design and knowledge. The publication opens up new perspectives on the (un)common media involved in architectural work.
