In the eartly phases of the design process the evaluation and the following decision-making are based on limited amount of information, nevertheless the decision will determine the direction of the remaining design process. The objektive with this paper is to present a way of representing the conceptual solutions, which facilitate an enhance utilisation of the avalible information. Based on the systems theory, a widening and more nuanced definition of the conception of relationship is being established, which implies an increased possibility of describing properties origin from the interaction between elements. The proposed representation should be considered as a first step towards a more elaborated methodology.
