Designing is an art of stylizing the structures. There are numerous ways to make a visible illustration of concepts. The designer might use a mix of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to provide end result. Architectural design aims to build three-dimensional structures that consider multifaceted aspects like firmness, utility, aesthetics, and human behaviors. For new building design or existing building renovation and interior design, the basic communication media of architecture information are either two-dimensional (2D), such as floor plans and section drawings, or three-dimensional (3D), such as physical or computer-generated models. Designers also use these 2D and 3D representations in the design process to generate and test their design ideas before actually constructing building and finalizing their design. Thus, the ability to read, interpret, and visualize 2D information in 3D or vice versa is critical for designers for both design communication and design generation. The ability to read, interpret, and visualize 2D to 3D is known as spatial ability. More research efforts in the above three areas will contribute to revealing the role of spatial ability in architectural and interior design ability. (Ji Young Cho: Three Areas of Research on Spatial Ability in the Architectural Design Domain) The art designing possess a journal from OMICS Group naming Journal of Architectural Engineering Technology which is an open access. It is a peer reviewed journal from which articles were reviewed by well qualified editors who are related to the field of architecture.
