From the beginning, knowledge is a preoccupation of human human preoccupation. A lot of questions are still discussed: what is knowledge? How knowledge is built? How is it represented in mind? How can it be kept? How can it be learned? Our challenge is how to capture design project knowledge related to work episodes and how to extract and represent the deep knowledge belonging to the type of projects and design activities. In this paper, we present an approach that helps to capture knowledge from daily design project environment and to aggregate this knowledge as classifications.
