The Importance of the sketch / by Phillip Jefferson

An architectural sketch conveys quick information that verbal communication sometimes cannot.  It gives a formal or informal representation of images conceived within one's mind, but also begins to open conversation about likes, dislikes, relationships, materials, scale, proportion but most importantly form and function.

These quick sketches demonstrate the initial concepts for the Goetz-Cunningham Residence addition.  Form, function, scale and proportion begin to order this project from the beginning.  It starts a conversation between owner and designer.
