The architectural design process is a negotiation between a problem and a solution through activities of analysis, synthesis and evaluation, it is characterised by being complex, with neither established nor mandatory patterns and methodologies. Design is an activity that involves constant and intensive decision-making processes in which designers, clients and users exchange knowledge and information in order to develop a solution for a given problem. However, these solutions do not always bring benefits to the client, causing dissatisfaction and creating problems for both clients and designers. These problems are mostly caused by the gaps between expectation and realisation on behalf of the client, often streaming from a lack of mutual knowledge between client and designer. Design and value management is a series of activities that can help designers to monitor, control and channel creativity in order to generate accurate, precise and valuable solutions for their client’s need. However, other design disciplines such as graphic and product design have different and valuable skills and methodologies that can contribute to this aim, helping architects to create proposals that will deliver longlasting benefits for both clients and end-users.
