This article describes one of the research studies carried out by LEMA, the Laboratory for the Study of Architectural Methodology, on the representation of the design process in architectural design. On the basis of an experiment, described here by the comparison of two complete examples, we describe which characteristics can enable us to distinguish a formal approach to the design (the architectural concept is the basis of the process) of a functional approach (the concept is formed by the process).

Keywords: architectural design, design process representation, cognitive models of design
