This research describes an understanding of design activity through design questions. From a number of previous studies two types of questions have been identified: 1) reasoning questions; and 2) strategic questions. Strategic questions are part of an experienced designers approach to solving a design task. The paper describes how designers progress their tasks by asking questions at both a reasoning and strategic level. Transcripts of protocol analysis have been examined to identify both strategic questions and reasoning questions. These are discussed together with their relation to a problem solving model. An example of aerospace engineering design is used to illustrate the argument. The research contributes to an understanding of design activity.
