• The growth of the World Wide Web has led to a new profession–that of the Information Architect. These specialists aim to build Web sites that are more clearly understood and more easily navigated by human users.
• While this metaphor seems to be providing a valuable model for building better Web sites, what are the elements mapped by this metaphor from the domain of architecture to the domain of Web design?
• Specifically, do we really communicate through architecture?
• And if we do communicate through architecture, what is the nature of that communication?
• There are a number of possible communication theories that can shed light on the nature of communication through architecture.
However, I believe these are inadequate to capture the complete nature of architecture. I believe that our understanding of architecture is itself a metaphorical understanding, and it would be most fruitful if we recognized it as such.
