In the proposed process model, the composition is the pairing of the form and the context. The composition comprises the salient body of work initiated by the architect on behalf of the client.

The composition also refers to the part of the project scaffold that contains and summarizes those documents that depict form and context, respectively. The client can look to the composition to gauge the stage of completion of the product they seek.

The concept of this term is derived from Notes on the Synthesis of Form by Christopher Alexander. In the book, Alexander uses the term ensemble to mean the same thing. I felt, however, that the term composition invoked a greater sense that the object to which it refers is acted upon. All instances of ensemble should therefore be considered synonymous.
