This paper investigates episodes and some aspects of design conversation in an architectural meeting. The analysis adopts an interpretative approach to design research and is guided by a qualitative research strategy. Designing is conceived as a social, interactive, interpretative process. Sociological and sociolinguistic concepts and research results are deployed to analyze design conversation and designing in terms of contexts and frames. The aim of the analysis is to reconstruct how participants interactively construct meaning in the design process and to describe practices they employ in the process.
