Drawings and types of design knowledge book
The drawing seems a useful source of potential insight into the knowledge that designers use. Designers are inextricably associated with drawings. When most people think of a designer they imagine someone who sits in a studio at a huge drawing board and above all else works with and through drawings. This image as we shall see is rather misleading, and actually designers draw in many places other than at drawing boards, and they also create physical models and computer models and representations. In fact they also talk a great deal among themselves and others. However, this must wait until later chapters. It is the drawing we are investigating here.
