There is a transitive relationship between many of the production methods of architecture and graphic design. In architecture, the outcomes obtained in the creative process leading to the construction of a building may sometimes turn into a graphical means of expression. Graphic design, on the other hand, is also a means of communication used in architecture. Representation methods, thinking and application tools of especially graphic design and architecture fields are the medium of expression that they started to have after the Industrial Revolution and continue today. In the present study, it was aimed to investigate the common expression tools used by architects and graphic designers, who have similar responsibilities especially in terms of the visualization of ideas, and to provide a source for interdisciplinary design by supporting these common visual expression tools with examples.
