Design intent is an expression that is used frequently in the AEC industry and stems from an individual’s preconceived expectations. Due to these preconceptions, intended design has the ability to create either an instant consensus or a sore misunderstanding. What Design Intent really embodies is information that is not fully developed or defined, but needs to be communicated to allow important decisions to be made.
Design is a complicated pursuit and depends heavily on human expertise and communication.

The key link is the communication necessary to bridge the gaps between all of these factors.
