In this paper a reflective architecture for modelling design tasks is discussed. This architecture makes an explicit distinction between two levels of reasoning. One level represents the reasoning about a design object (using object-level knowledge). The other level explicitly represents the reasoning about why, when and which process steps to undertake (here process or meta-level knowledge is used). The paper gives two examples of specification and representation languages for design tasks based on the two-level reflective architecture as described here: ADDL and DESIRE.
