Abstract
This paper argues that it is crucial to conceptualize the difference between the notions "design rationale" and "discursive rationale". Awareness of the rational component in the design process may not be confused with having "theoretical knowledge" on the way designers design. We do not define the act of designing as a "discursive process" in which every step taken can be argued and covered with theoretical knowledge. That's why the description (and the analysis) of a certain "design rationale" is distinct from the "practical design knowledge" as we find in design guides. When we really want to think about "design" we have to articulate the interstice between thinking, writing and designing.
