Consider the following scenario: The New South Wales Department of Health has made a budget available for the renovation and expansion of a mental hospital. An architect-planner is hired to produce the project's planning report for the local health authority. His report is to set out how available funds can be best used to do the work. After five meetings with health officials, engineers, architects, and future users of the building, and after three drafts of the report and of its tenta-tive two-dimensional drawings, everybody present at the last meeting signs o. on the planning report. During the next stage of the project, the report's two-dimensional drawings are used to produce three- dimensional computer-generated designs. These designs are plotted onto special sheets, which become the basis from which the builders proceed with their construction of the building.
