This article argues that interior/architectural design education favours a dominance of final presentation over the design process in the studio environment, particularly in the evaluation of a project. It suggests that the appeal of design juries for pleasant drawings, which may shift the emphasis from the project itself to its representation, may be recognized as a discursive habit with limited contribution for educational concerns. The theoretical stance argues that the interest for graphical presentation has primarily remained within a formalist aesthetic agenda and has rarely been conceptualized beyond this convention. With this in mind a series of questions is developed in order to reform the relationship between graphical presentation and the design education process.
