As stated in the press release:

"Design" is simply choice. Aesthetic choice. The elements of design can be seen in architectural, graphic or industrial drawings and the products they describe can be buildings, bridges or appliances. 

Nowhere are those designs more plentiful than in an advanced consumer society like ours. And ArchiTech Gallery is the one place where those earliest designs can be acquired as works of art.

Often, design drawings are the first draft of the creative process.  But that process is hidden from the view of everyone else but the artist.
