Abstract

It is generally regarded that visual reasoning ability is critical in design process. Earlier a visual reasoning model composed of eight primitive components was proposed based on the design ideation process of seeing-imagining-drawing. In this paper, we describe how the visual reasoning model could be used to identify characteristics in various tasks related to design ability such as missing view problem task, mental synthesis task, and conceptual design task. This could help in understanding design process characteristics in general as well as in devising supports to enhance design reasoning abilities adaptive to design student characteristics and situations.
