ABSTRACT : Designers of architectural objects have to order a quantity of existing data, integrate new data and structure them so they make sense and provide useful information. They must be able to be interpreted and used by the other participants involved in the various stages of the construction process: the design, representation and implementation. Information and Communication Technologies have modified the way that information and data circulate between the various participants. Our hypothesis is that the process is no longer linear and sequential, but circular and synchronic. Based on Norman’s work (1988), we propose a new possibility for data configuration, which could contribute to outlining a theory of information design in the field of architecture, capable of highlighting the causal relations which exist between elements (data and participants) at each stage considered.
