Design practice is complex and multifaceted. Designing the form of three dimensional objects, for example, involves the creation of a number of design descriptions. This paper, with the aid of examples drawn from empirical studies of design practice, focuses on the relations between a number of geometrical design descriptions, and examines their use through an analysis of shape rules derived from practice.
