The visual representations traditionally used by architects form a primary source for the analysis and understanding of architectural design. Computerization and, in particular, computer vision offer a new opportunity for making explicit the general cognitive mechanisms and the domain knowledge involved in these representations, as well as for developing subsequently intelligent computer tools which support and facilitate the representation of design thinking and its products.
