This dissertation lays out a comprehensive creative structure for Knowledge Management systems in a hierarchy of levels, orienting each level to work structure in the Architectural profession -- so that a clear picture of integration possibilities is presented. Cultural barriers, technical implementation, opportunities and examples are explored to illustrate the overall structure. Some processes and techniques used in the Architectural profession are analysed, including the generation, visualisation, capture, and sharing of ideas and information ... The working model for Architectural KM proposed in this dissertation is a creative approach to the problem and the essential question confronted is how to design and implement an effective KM process for an architectural enterprise. The work end with the initiation stages of the introduction of the model, developed as a result of this research, into a specific architectural practice.
