Interpreting is rarely discussed in the context of basic design, which is mostly deemed as an overly rationalized teaching of the fundamentals of designing. This paper sheds light on the relation of designing and interpreting based on design protocols where novice architectural design students are asked to create basic organizations and write about their processes. Utilizing the basic tension between deeds and words, we explore and identify an articulated relation between acting and interpreting.

Keywords: Design thinking, interpretation, language, design process, protocol analysis
